In this rare color photograph by Albert Kahn of the original Moulin Rouge in Paris, we see the famous cabaret a year before it burned down in 1915. It was built in 1889 and inspired many spinoffs, homages, and even an Academy Award nominated movie. After the fire, it was rebuilt and officially reopened in 1921.
According to Wikipedia:
The house was co-founded in 1889 by Charles Zidler and Joseph Oller, who also owned the Paris Olympia. Close to Montmartre in the Paris district of Pigalle on Boulevard de Clichy in the 18th arrondissement , it is marked by the red windmill on its roof. The closest métro station is Blanche.
