Lazare Hoche et sa maison natale

At the beginning of the week, I showed you Hoche street and place and explained a little about the general. Here is Lazare Hoche in more detail. This below is the house where he was born, in (rue) Satory street. As you can see, the ground floor is now a restaurant named after him!
---------------------------------
Au début de la semaine, je vous montrais les rue et place Hoche, voici donc le général en plus détaillé, ainsi que ci-dessous, sa maison natale rue de Satory. Le restaurant du rez-de-chaussée, évidemment, ne pouvait s'appeler que "chez Lazare" !

Architecture, history and a great portrait. Brava!

Bob Crowe said...

He was a revolutionary but he looks cold and haughty. Did he play a role in la ancien régime?

He was a handsome man, I think. I like the angle you chose to take this photo from.

I wonder how accurate the sculpture is — he looks very pretty here.

He doesn't frequent the café named after him, I hope! ;)

Beautiful house...I'd like to try that restaurant!

je me demande toujours ou les restaurateurs vont cherches le noms de leurs restaurants ;o) beaucoup d'imagination ;o)

Wonderful images. This reamarkable guy has a solid historical and artistic link to Quiberon, Brittany.

He looks a regal fellow.

Encore un bel homme, mais je préfère quand même La Notre !

Is it the fate of all great peoples homes to become restaurants? Could be worse, I guess.

I love the way you post some close up and some distance shot. Also, you teach us so much history!

Beautiful building. I especially like the many balconies.

Remarque, je n'aurais probablement pas fait le rapprochement. "Hoche", ça fait grosse brasserie, "Chez Lazare" est plus intime et convivial.

I wonder what it would feel like to travel in time, pop up in the distant future, hardly recognize anything and then find a restaurant bearing your name... (Well, we'll never know.)
