Chaplin at the Palais de la Méditerranée, Nice, April 1931

Photos from Sur La Riviera, April 12, 1931.

Chaplin spent two weeks in Nice during the first part of his 1931-32 world tour. He was the guest of Frank J. Gould (4th from right) and his wife, Florence, who owned the Palais de la Mediterranée, as well as the Majestic Hotel (where Chaplin stayed). Gould was once married to the sister of Charlie's first love, Hetty Kelly.

Caption translates roughly to:
"Chaplin accused by the city of Paris of stealing the towers of Notre Dame
 pleads guilty and begs the indulgence of Henry Torrés prominent civil lawyer."
