A vous Cognacq Jay!


I took this photo on top of a very famous place in Paris ; the historical television studios of the French Television! It's located rue Cognacq Jay in the 7th arrondissement and all French people who are my age, and more, can still remember reporters saying "and now, back to our studio... A vous Cognacq Jay"! It is still used as television facilities and by multimedia companies like the one of Vincent Giolito, the dear friend I visited there yesterday evening.

  1. The double Eiffel Tower gives the photo a great effect!

  5. What a great photo of La Tour Eric and very original.

    I have to confess I am a Paris Daily addict. Thanks for creating such a great blog about 'our city'.

    It's great logging on and wondering what the next photo will be!

    Keep up the good work!

  6. I don't remember Cognacq Jay. Wow. I hope I'm not following in Reagan's footsteps ... And then again, we weren't exactly a TV oriented family, so that might explain this.

    However, I will say this: the more Eiffel Towers in the pic, the better ;)

  7. I just checked on wikipedia that "Cognaq-Jay comes from "Ernest Cognacq" et "Marie-Louise Jaÿ" (his wife) who founded the store "La Samaritaine".

    I will never forget the name "Cognacq Jay" because i belong to the same generation as Eric, and because of the "Cognac" drink ;-)

  8. thank you anonymous... i was wondering if it indeed had something to do with the fact that la patinoire was replaced this year by a winter wonderland of evergreens.

    This from the guy who didn't much like photography when he got his first camera as a gift.

  24. With regard to viagra and erectile dysfunction, it is already apparent that Viagra was first developed as a treatment for angina but later the drug emerged to be a suitable cure for male impotency but far more striking news is presently capturing the attention of the whole world. Seems Untrue! Well, it is doubtlessly true that oysters fed with the anti-impotency drug Viagra has shown effective results against erectile dysfunction and George May, the Australian farmer who created Viagra oysters became thoroughly popular after the news relating to the efficacy of his Viagra oysters leaked out. Guys! If cheap viagra can make oysters so powerful against erectile dysfunction then why won’t you be able to combat your impotency successfully after you buy viagra? Opt for Viagra via viagra online and once you buy Viagra online and administer the drug in accordance with the instructions of the doctor, you would instantly get cured of erectile dysfunction!

  26. Viagra is the world renowned medicine for erectile dysfunction and most men have forgotten they ever had a problem with erections after its use. Take it on empty stomach and it will work in 30 minutes. Erections can be achieved on stimulation.

  27. Generic Cialis is used to increase blood flow to certain areas of the body, as a muscle relaxant and as a male impotence or erectile dysfunction treatment.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Generic Cialis is slightly different from the other erectile drugs available in the market as it may work up to 36 hrs after dosing. Generic Levitra orks along with sexual stimulation to help achieve an erection when taken 30 to 60 minutes before sexual activity.

  29. Generic Viagra is used in the treatment of Erectile Dysfunction (impotence), but it is not a cure. Impotence can be caused by a number of factors, either physical or psychological. Viagra can help maintain an erection but it will not stimulate arousal.
