Why is it that everything in Paris is so beautiful, although I have to say that's rather a grumpy face guarding the window haha!

Bienvenue chez French Girl in Seattle... said...

1870... This beautiful building must have been built during the "great Paris remodel" undertaken by Napoleon III and his faithful wingman, le Baron Haussmann. Great photo Virginia. Veronique (French Girl in Seattle)

I wonder if there was glass in the space above the number?

Alexa said...

Love the little opening under the actual window. I even like the face on the "gardien"—il boude as only a French person can. Wish I could live at numéro 42. (wherever it is!)

Harriet said...

Writing out numbers in French is a tad bit easier than doing those Roman Numerals, n'est-ce pas????

As always, I love seeing the architecture of Paris through your lens.

It's so much fun reading your Paris blog and looking at your fabulous, interesting pictures, Virginia. The only downside is that it makes me want to go back right now, and I know that I can't.

Great capture of magnificent architectural details here. They don't make them like that any more, do they?

Three years... how time flies !
I'll raise my (virtual) glass of champagne to this achievement and to the hope of having a non-virtual one with you one day in Paris.
