The Little Bridge
Gypsy family with children panhandles late at night on the Petit Pont near Notre Dame. The little girl pictured lies alone, with a doll, at the edge of the blanket, with her head very close to the passing feet of those crossing the bridge after midnight. Many children can be observed on the streets of Paris, accompanying their families in many cases, sometimes alone, panhandling for long hours. The children are not in school, and instead spend their days and nights on blankets in various locations throughout the city.
