PARIS - Part 39

The intersection area of the grand Hotel Lutetia, an Art Nouveau beauty in the Left Bank of Paris (south of the Seine river). The main road there is Boulevard Raspail. The Bon Marché department store is in that area, far away from Printemps and Galeries Lafayette department stores in the Right Bank.





Lutetia Hotel, which was going through a cleanup or facelift of some sort. It had a net or mesh around parts of the façade.






The buildings around the hotel are particularly nice too.












Other nice buildings in that immediate area

Amazing pictures! Paris was really lucky that it was spared during WWII. Hitler actually ordered his generals to burn down Paris before they retreated from the city, but luckily, they thought it was sacrilege to destroy such a beautiful city. London, on the other hand...

LONDON - Part 40

Finishing my visit to Borough Market in Southwark borough, south of the Thames river. The big market is inside the building on the left with iron arches. I imagine Les Halles market in Paris looked somewhat like that before its extinction.




The area around this part of Southwark (near Southwark Cathedral) is very "charming" if you can handle that word.



Nice little shops compliment the neighborhood.



Southwark Cathedral. The Thames river is just steps from the cathedral. This general area of Southwark is the first part of London south of the river to become settled and urbanized.

The grand Hotel Lutetia is indeed a great building in Paris
