With nothing else around to take a picture of on the eastern side of the railway tracks (see parts 1 to 6), I went down the Gambetta underpass, only to discover some new signs as soon as I emerged above ground.
Unfortunately, this series of painted signs is not easy to decipher, partly because it is hidden by the modern signs of a well-known car rental company, but also because there are several layers including one with many elaborate floral motives.
To the left of the window:
