Then and Now: Corner of rue des Abbesses and rue Ravignan, Paris

1948-2009

Apologies for the recent hiatus, regular posting resumes with this very first Then and Now from Montmartre. From what I've gathered, the Hotel du Bouquet de Montmartre only ceased to exist very recently (the old sign is still visible on Google Street View), and is currently being renovated for residences.
