Now the Paris floods are receding, here's a look at how they compared to the great flood of 1910.
The flooding in the River Seine in Paris reached its peak on Saturday at 6.10 metres, which was still a far cry lower than the great flood of 1910 when the water hit 8.62 metres.
 
Here is a set of comparison images from entertainment website Golem 13. See more images here, some of them interactive.
