La Caisse d'Épargne

Caisse d'épargne Versailles
VDP has shown you this beautiful building before. It is the Caisse d’Épargne. If you look back at this older post, you will read about what it is and see that it has been cleaned since 2010! Bonus photos in 2015, a close-up of the old ad on the adjacent building and the gorgeous gate (seen in the middle of the first shot).

VDP vous avait déjà montré la Caisse d’Épargne. Si vous jetez un œil sur ce billet de 2010, vous verrez qu'elle a été bien nettoyée ! En prime en 2015, la vieille pub sur le bâtiment adjacent et la belle grille (au milieu sur la première photo).

Not too many banks look like this in the U.S. What a beautiful building. I liked the way it looked before the cleanup, too!

I'm so happy they didn't try to remove the advertisement, it's a lost art.

You have found a ghost sign, Ciel! What a beautiful building and gate!

Yes, indeed. It is a fine building.

Wow! It's definitely looking much nicer since the last time you showed it. It's nice to see good things happen.

A lovely building, my bank looks like a shoebox!

It certainly has been cleaned up from your original image, I like the ghost sign too!

I would think those windows would admit a great deal of light inside, making for some beautiful interior spaces.

The style of architecture never disappoints. Fun to see the comparison too. Wonderful photos.

I do love the look of this building. Everything about it screams "French". Very nice.

Good Neighbor Rental? Is that the advertisement?
