Hotel de Ville, Paris, after being taken over by the Commune on 28th March 1871

Hotel de Ville, Paris, after being taken over by the Commune on 28th March 1871. The Commune marked its victory in the municipal elections by installing itself in the Hotel de Ville and draping the building with red banners and flags. At the end of the Franco-Prussian war, Parisian socialists set up the Commune and refused to surrender Paris to the rightwing French government. This led to bitter fighting on the streets of the city and large-scale executions of Communards. Date: 28th March 1871
