Ladies and Gentlemen, we have a winner! Krs at Wanna Go To Paris correctly identified this location:
rue du Mont-Cenis
Here’s what Krs had to say,
This is the old Château d’eau (water tower ?) in Montmartre.
Right on both counts! It is indeed the old Château d’eau (“water tower” in English) in Montmartre. i could find no confirmation one way or the other if it’s still in working order.
For this week’s photo, I’m looking for the famous lovers who lived in this house. They were kind of the French Romeo and Juliette except they really existed. I’ve blocked out everything but the first initial of their names to give you a little hint…
Where Is This and Who Are They?
Correct answers in the Comments section below win a coveted prize.
I’d like to turn this site into more of a collaborative effort, if at all possible. For that, I need your help!
If you have taken a picture of Paris on your smart phone and would like to show it off to the world, why not do it here? It doesn’t have to be super artistic–there are enough photo sites of Paris as it is–just taken with a mobile phone and that’s all!
Please send a copy of your photograph to Paris.Paul.Prescott@gmail.com and I’ll let you know when it’ll be posted.
Thanks so much for your help!
