Does this stairway have a checkered past?  The stories that little black cat could tell!

Today's illustration features this beautiful Escalier (staircase) nestled within the walls of one of the relatively small number of covered passageways of Paris.  This arcade called Galerie Véro-Dodat is one of the many picturesque attractions of the 1st arrondissement, not to mention a welcome escape if the grey skies have opened to sprinkle you ever so delightfully with Parisian rain.

One of the arcade entrances is located right alongside the very pretty Cafe de L'Époque which you might remember from this post a few months ago.  Look closely in that illustration and you can see the Galerie Véro-Dodat sign!  As for whether or not there is a checkered past, you'll have to ask the inscrutable kitty cat when you're there.  And on that note ...

Happy Francophile Friday to you!  {And please cliquez-ici to order this fine art print ...}
