Thank you Bovin and ko7, I'm glad that you appreciate my efforts. Alas the series is drawing to an end.
I'm preparing another neighborhood, though. I'll post soon, stay tuned

Great website. By the way, thank you so much for your exposition, really shows how Paris has transformed over the centuries. It is one of the most interesting threads around.

Le quartier de la Grève in 1450:




La Grève was the main port of Paris all through the Middle Ages.


http://www.linternaute.com/actualite...de-greve.shtml


Maison aux Piliers / Hôtel de Ville, City Hall

In 1357, the mayor of Paris bought the House of Pillars to be the seat of the municipality in front of la Grève. Since then, numerous transformations have modified the form of the building but the façades have kept their renaissance style.

Pompe de notre-dame, the hydraulic pump Notre-Dame, destroyed in 1861:


http://www.paris-unplugged.com/2012/...en-stereo.html


Pont Notre-Dame

In ancient times there was already a bridge. Later, it suffered of damages caused by the invasions, finally in the 13th century it was rather a footbridge called "Planches Milbray" (literally: planks in middle of the arm > of the Seine). It was replaced by a new bridge made of wood with houses in 1421. The bridge collapsed in 1499. Then, the construction of a bridge in stone started.


http://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fichier...2_denoised.jpg


The houses were demolished in 1787 and the bridge itself replaced in 1853.

Monceau Saint-Gervais in 1450 (Atlas historique de Paris):




At the beginning, the right bank was a marshland. Some unsinkable hillocks called monceaux allowed the construction of churches around which villages soon grew up. Over time those hillocks have been levelled. Nevertheless, the word "monceau" is still in use for Saint-Gervais.


Church of Saint-Gervais-Saint-Protais

It was the site of a basilica as early as the 4th century, it is the oldest parish of the right bank. The present Church was built between 1494 and 1621 in the gothic style (except the façade).

L'Orme Saint-Gervais / The Elm of Saint-Gervais

image hosted on flickr

église saint gervais saint protais, paris par laetitiablabli, sur Flickr

Some may ask why there is an elm just in front of the church.
Simply because it is not any tree, it is the symbol of the neighborhood, a symbol of freedom, it is supposed to bring luck. It is a witness of the very old habit to plant an elm in front of a church or at a crossroads.

The present elm was planted in 1935, the first mention of the tree dates back to 1235. In the middle ages it was a meeting place. People used to pay their debts under it, hence the proverb "Attendez-moi sous l'orme" ("wait for me under the elm" = You can wait for me but I shan't come!).


The sign of an ironmonger's shop (end of the 18th century):




Behind the church there is a building with grilles in the effigy of the elm.


http://moniquetdany.typepad.fr/moniq.../07/index.html


Popular festival around the Elm in the 16th century:

Rue des Barres, was called ruelle au Moulin des Barres in 1250. The name might refer to the wooden posts of the first wall that surrounded the neighborhood.

The wall of Saint-Gervais and Saint-Merri in the 11th (Atlas historique de Paris):
