Paris streetscape 1905

I have a young bohemian arriving in Paris in 1905 to study painting. While I have a good sense of where she will live and study etc, what I want is some pointers to a resource that will help me visualise what the city would have looked, smelt and felt like in 1905. I can think of lots of books for the London equivalent, but nothing leaps to mind for Paris. Obviously, I can research specific questions like the cost of a Metro ticket etc, but I'd like a book (or, I suppose, a web resource of some kind) to help thicken up the general details. Photographs would be great. I read French.

Thanks in advance to anyone who can make suggestions.
