Pictures taken this trip also include World War I memorials in Parish parish churches at Church of the Madeliene
Church of the Madeliene
It wasn't built as a church, obviously, and Christ in Judgment seems concerned to keep the Apostles from falling off the edge, but in context (immediately below, seen from Place de laConcorde) the church makes a nice statement about church and state in France in the 19thcentury.
Looking to the Louvre and, later, to Les Invalides just about sunset on the Pont des Invalides
Riding up to (right) and at (below) the top
Looking down the to the Arche de Triomphe in the central distance; below, aview of steps leading to the observation platform atop the arch.
As along the Western Front, French graves are marked with a cross--a curious fact, given theproud separation of church and state in France--and English with a tombstone.
The Clignancourt Flea Market (I'd recommend Le Voltaire for lunch) & the rue Vintimille, wherethe apartment was, and where, as per the sign, Nadia Boulanger lived with her sister Lili (PlaceLili Boulanger).
