La Préfecture vue de l'impasse des Gendarmes

Impasse des Gendarmes Préfecture Versailles
Walking out of Gendarmes cul-de-sac towards Avenue de Paris with the gorgeous Préfecture building on the other side of the avenue and a Morris column in the foreground! See the Préfecture and read about its history by clicking here and view all the posts about the beautiful building here.

En sortant de l'impasse des gendarmes, on aboutit sur l'avenue de Paris, au coin de la rue des Chantiers, avec en face, le magnifique bâtiment de la Préfecture. Pour la voir de près et connaître son histoire résumée, cliquez ici. Pour voir tous les billets sur la Préfecture, c'est par là.

I agree with you it's a stunning building and should be cherished, sadly in London we seem to be in to much of a hurry to pull down some of the wonderful older parts. Smashing picture as well, wonderful colours.....

Amazing to think about how long those quoin corners have been around and where they pop up all over the world.

That's a wonderful sight to see when emerging from the cul-de-sac Ciel, j'adore the classic style and grey slate (?) roof of the Prefecture building. Super series from your favourite spot.

Exit stage left for Wales and France. The southern hemispere big three are awesome. My dream is to see them routed by a northern team, but at the moment its just a pipe dream. I will be surprised if N Z get beaten.
