Aux Mousquetaires

I had shown you this building, "the musketeers" in a rather derelict state here. Last year, I had shown you how the renovation works were hidden by street art. That was here. So what do you think of the new façade? Oh and this pic was taken on Saturday when it started snowing. If you enlarge the photo and look at the top, you'll see a few snowflakes!

Je vous avais montré cet immeuble dans un état assez tristounet ici, puis l'année dernière l'art urbain qui cachait les travaux ici. Que pensez-vous de la nouvelle façade ? Ah, cette photo a été prise samedi quand il a commencé à neiger. Si vous agrandissez la photo, vous verrez quelques flocons en haut !

Oh, Wow! It does look great now!! Amazing compared to the first shot and the wild street art! I love it now!! Great shot for the day, Ciel!! Great to see how it's been "saved"!

That is a great transformation! I'm glad they restored the sign too.

It's been restored beautifully Ciel, any idea what it's used for? Love the name, would be perfect for a restaurant oui!

The building is lovely but I don't care much for the sign...maybe it looks better in person?

Jack said...

It has promise, Ciel. I need to see more.

I remember the street art last year! It looks very handsome now though I did like the yellow from its derelict state. I hope the snow has been enjoyable rather than too-cold!

It looks great. It's nice that they are fixing it up.

il y a de quoi boire et manger dans cette taverne, puis tu connais le proverbe entre le flacon et le contenu.

VP said...

A quite bad choice of colors, IMHO.

Musketeers? Where are the Mouseketeers? GRIN!

Halcyon said...

I rather like it! Very classic. Surprised someone has the window open with the snow though. :)

Moi aussi , j'ai pensé que des mousquetaires devraient être bleus!:o)
Mais la renovation est bien jolie quand même!

Loree said...

It's looking nice. Maybe one of the musketeers is lurking around in there somewhere :)

j'avoue que je préfère l'avant que l'après -- ça fait trop décor de cinéma maintenant ...
