Parisian Staircase

Sometimes old building staircases are not exactly in mint condition, but they still have this unique flavor that only old Paris edifice have. This one belongs to one of the oldest buildings in the 10th arrondissement and it is typical of the 18th century buildings. Fortunately, the apartment of the friend I visited there is brand new (not the friend, the apartment!). Have a great Sunday.


  1. The real reason there are few fat Parisians is that there are so many buildings with staircases like the one pictured. It seems that all the people I knew or visited in Paris lived on the third floor or above. (That's the fourth floor to Americans.)

  2. Such old staircases....

    Works of Art....

    I love photos, of them.

    À la rentrée !
