Every street corner in Paris should have eight blue enameled signs stating the names of the streets crossing one another…It is not always the case, and a weathered Paris inhabitant sometimes get confused. He expects these signs in order to find his way in an area he is not familiar with. The design of these signs has not changed for decades, at least since I was a kid. I actually get angry if the name of a street is not given where it should be. So let's say you have one of those signs, the base of a street lamp, a paved way - and these are getting rare, since most of them have been covered by a layer of tar to keep the demonstrators from using them against the police after the so-called 1968 revolution ! - So paved "chaussée", street lamp and street sign : you are in a timeless Paris. At night, it will be even more of an illusion. It could almost be a movie set from the 1930's, maybe shot by Marcel Carné.
