What seems to be a grand thoroughfare, lined with striking stone columns, each supporting a spherical metal sculpture?
Again these are unposted and have a standard back template – absolutely no clues at all!
To me, not a frequent visitor, it looks a bit like The Mall in London leading up to Buckingham Palace?

Could it be the Champs Elysee (Place De La Concorde end) in Paris ...alB

I think you may be right about the end of WW1. I've just lightened it up a god deal in Photoshop and once again I will try to put them on here.. Lovely car in the foreground of what seems like the Mall from Buckingham Palace end. Even the shape of the gardens look like the ones there now.

Just beat me there, was about to post same picture. That statue looks identical to me.

The Mall doesn't look like that now. Are they temporary structures?
On balance I don't think it is The Mall in London but I've ben wrong before with these postcards.

Now find that I have to agree with cycoze - well done.
