Is there a huge spider on the glass roof of the "Maison de l'Amateur" ? The oldest remaining building of the city, reminiscent of the ancient activities of the harbor has this strange "puits de lumière", a hole right in the middle of the building, that allows light to seep into the narrow rooms. There are also two different staircases in the house, one for the house gusts, one much tighter, for the servants. The place is difficult to photograph because the rooms are small, like they were in houses of the period. One reason for this is probably because they had to be heated in the winter. It gives a feeling of intimacy and comfort that characterizes this place. The circular pattern on this picture is strangely communicating with other typical places of le Havre.
