After Peter and I looked at the Street Art , we talk a walk
down Rue Moufftard , just taking a stroll and
then going for a beer at the bottom of the street.
Hope you enjoy this little stroll. As you know this street
is famous for all the little Delis, Cheese shops, Wine shops and
lots more. I do have photos of those from another trip but not this time.
This ancient advertisement, is above what was once a chocolate factory,
and dates back to 1748, is situated on the pretty, Place de la Contrescarpe, Paris.
It’s now on Paris’s
registry of sites deemed historical and unable to be removed or modified.
If you would like to read more of the history in the link please.
I am sure if this was in the UK , it would be destroyed. I hope that the people of Paris
who want to keep it , do,
lived in Paris at 74 Rue Cardinal Limoine in 1922 until 1923 with
his first wife Hadley , an American writer.
This is such unusual looking Art work. Pigs, birds, dear and wild boar intertwining
amongst the plant spirals. is is dating from 1929 - 1931 and the shades of Gold and
Brown are original for the time. Created by Adigheri , an Italian artisan using
the sgraffito technique.
I just love walking around and seeing this history , much more than
going to a museum. Not to say I don't go to them , but not very often!
Hope you all have a great week
