The Paris Metro does History

I have posted several articles about how the London Underground is making sure that it restores old stations sensitively and creates new ones of class.

So here’s two pictures from Paris.

Pigalle Metro Station, Paris

This shows the entrance to Pigalle station near Montmartre.  The French have resisted any thoughts to change the design.

To match the Gillespie Road tiling, here’s the tiling at Concorde.

Tiling in Concorde Metro Station, Paris

Note too in the picture above that the instructions on how to use the Metro are shown.  They’ve also started to put maps of the area around the station on the platform.  This and putting maps upstairs should always be there.  London always does the latter and I always use them when I visit an unfamiliar station.
