Yes, I moved. My metro station is now “Alma-Marceau” – which opened in 1923. We are at the junction of the Avenue Marceau and the bridge, Pont d’Alma … and also of the Avenue George V, Avenue Montaigne… Maybe it’s of some interest to know why these names? Alma refers to the Battle of Alma in 1854 during the Crimean War. Marceau refers to a French general, François Séverin Marceau-Desgraviers (1769-96) who was killed in a battle at the age of 27 and who also is immortalized by Byron: “Honour to Marceau… brief, brave and glorious was his young career…”. King George V (1865-1936) gave his name to the previous Avenue d’Alma already in his lifetime, in 1918, with reference to WWI. Avenue de Montaigne was previously called the “widows’ alley” and got its name from the renaissance philosopher Michel de Montaigne (1533-92) much later. Before visiting the immediate neighbourhood, here we can see how the area developed during the centuries and especially note that from almost being countryside, the real change took place during the last decades of the 19thcentury, Haussmann again. One detail was the fire pump which lifted the Seine waters to some nearby basins and which was in operation here between 1781 and 1900. Here are thus some views from my new and immediate surroundings – I neglect the Palais de Tokyo and the Galliera Museum on which I have already posted, see here and here. The Flame, copy of the Flame of the Statue of Liberty, was a gift by the International Herald Tribune to Paris in 1989, to commemorate the 1789 Revolution, see previous post. I have already talked about the new orthodox church several times, e.g. here.A few statues, the one of the Belgian-French friendship and “La Seine” on which I also wrote here. The bridge, Pont’d’Alma, with its Zouave on which I reported e.g. here and here. Some views of churches behind the trees, the Saint-Pierre de Chaillot (see here) and the American Cathedral (see here). Three embassies, the Spanish one, the Vatican one and the Kenyan one. A number of places where to eat and drink… some quite renowned.Fashion houses, Givenchy, Saint Laurent, Balenciaga … including the newly reopened YSL museum.Crazy Horse… A fashionable area, nice in many ways, but where it’s difficult to find a haircut for less than 70 € …… and where I must make a nice walk to find a supermarket, a boulangerie …but twice a week, I can find fresh food and a lot of other stuff on Avenue Wilson… and I have my little garden in front of my little flat. It’s really nice.
