Photographer's Note

The Holy Quentin market was built in 1860. It is a typical building of the iron, glass and brick architecture, of this time.You fin dit in the Magenta boulevard in the tenth district of Paris. This big boulevard is one of ways drilled by Haussmann to renew Paris (20 000 buildings and a lot of ancient monuments were destroyed to clean up Paris between 1850 and 1870). Poor people have to leave to the suburb of the capital and the bourgeoisie settles down in haussmanniens buildings. It is these stone buildings of 5 floors generally, with 2 or 3 rows of balconies as the one that we see in reflection.
The market is the biggest market hall of Paris. It is very full of life in a district today very cosmopolitan. I advise you to go there to have a sight more different from usual Paris!
