Parisian promotion of a magnificent past; even in not-so-charming quartiers like the Montparnasse, there is a barrage of name-dropping:
Tour Montparnasse. Gray-blue sky rise. The best way to look at it, is from the inside; the view over Paris is breathtaking. From street-view it’s a depressing mass of metal and glass. Blue reflections on the monument to General Marie Pierre Kœnig (1898–1970) for his accomplishments during WWII. The inscriptions reads, “General Koenig, know that you are the pride of France”. In a park in Porte Maillot, across the Palais de Congres.A car maker with a french touch. Ultra stylish special case for the lady’s parasol. There is Peugeot and then, there is not-Peugeot.
