Antony is the municipality in the southern suburbs of Paris just south of Sceaux, which I'm showing here:
http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=605343

It's just two stations down on the same RER line. Yet they are quite different in character.

Is that main road you show the avenue that goes along Antony, Sceaux, Bourg-la-Reine, etc., before reaching Paris' Porte d'Orléans?

You should have taken a picture of the WW2 tank standing on the main avenue of Antony (the avenue you showed just above). It's a testimony of the Liberation of Paris. Antony was at the time the last suburb of Paris (i.e. immediately after Antony the countryside started), so when the troops of Leclerc arrived to liberate Paris the first built-up area they encountered was Antony, where the Germans opposed some resistance on the avenue leading to the Porte d'Orléans. They have left a tank there commemorating those great days of the Liberation of Paris. It's a strange sight when you drive over there.
