surprenant contrasme entre cette vieille carte et le modernisme des guichets

I like the design elements around what I assume are the ticket windows. The map is pretty cool too.

A lovely station... great to see it is decorated so beautifully.

Woody said...

This is really lovely and I like the tile border.

Jack said...

Excellent, Ciel. It is high enough that many a commuter has gotten a stiff neck trying to read it.

Thanks for your concern about Irene. It has already passed through here and wasn't too bad. Back to normal tomorrow.

Randy said...

Very nice. If I went there at least I wouldn't get lost.

Regina K said...

Unlike Randy, I would still get lost...

When I lived in Washington D.C. nearly 40 years ago one of the premier restaurants was called Rive Gauche. Another was Sans Souci. They must figure that the restaurants will be perceived as fine dining if they have French names. Or maybe they thought they could charge higher prices with a French name.

Nice! Has Versailles changed a lot since that map was drawn?

@ Dina: no!

Est ce qu'il y a l'option loupe comme avec Google Map car je ne sais pas si j'arriverais vraiment à me repérer...

Malyss said...

Moi aussi , je le trouve un peu haut et loin pour arriver à le lire!mais si c'est juste pour faire joli, alors c'est reussi..

Ou est l'échelle?

Seems nice and confusing at the same time, nice tile border.

I love to look at maps up close so I guess to see this I'd need binoculars of stilts. :)

VP said...

Very nice... I am getting old: I absolutely missed this one!

I love old maps as decorative features, was trying with the picture blown up and my magnifying glass out to see the date, I think it says 1957, fantastic!!

Sharon said...

I bet that comes in handy for the many visitors who pass through.

JM said...

This almost looks like a collage of two photos. Cool!

joo said...

Nice station, clean and airy.
Have a nice evening:)

Rive Gauche reminds me of the YSL perfume. Nice station.

Looks complicated! :)
