Tabacs


On the rue du Faubourg Saint-Denis, near the passage de l'Industrie, an ancient tobacconist's sign uncovered during a building renovation. I know there are some laws that protect old building signage. I hope they save this one.

That's my neighborhood.
I gotta check it out.

Thanks. :-)

David,

I believe it at corner of rue du Faubourg St Denis and rue d'Enghein. There's some scaffolding around it, but this is visible from the sidewalk.

So evocative.

Just read your comment...

Nope, it's never too late to learn to 'Eat that frog!'

But I'd be careful about saying it, where you now live. >,-)

Polly, your blog is like a little trip to France from here in my office in Colorado! Thanks for the beautiful photos and commentaries!
