Les petites maisons de la rue Crémieux

Rue Cremieux is lovely in the pre-dawn, and not too bad later in the day when two old men strolled along the pave playing along on their trumpets ... looking for well-earned tips for their Saturday tipple.

More on that later. First a look at the houses in rue Cremieux ... There are thirty three houses - and a hotel - in this small street that is blocked off to the traffic, a blessing on the "four-day long weekend" that Parisians were enjoying while I was there. Rue Cremieux is lovely in the pre-dawn, and not too bad later in the day when two old men strolled along the pave playing along their trumpets ... looking for well-earned tips for their Saturday tipple.

    Utterly gorgeous Bob, I love the framing of these photos. If I could I’d live in vingt-quatre. Or maybe vingt-trois. Or douze. Or any of them. Eat a pan au chocolat for me please.
