07.   The White Step, Bastille
07. The White Step, Bastille

Not far from the Bastille in Paris, the Rue du Faubourg St. Antoine stretches east towards anonymity. But on its way it hosts the remnants of several narrow courtyards that once housed small scale industry. Several of these are in the hands of retail furniture warehouses, but others are ateliers and apartments. The general impression from the stairwells is that not a great deal has changed in the last hundred years or so.
