Au chic parisien, La Rochelle

Au chic parisien: it's all in the name! Just when I was taking my pictures, a man stopped to tell me his mother used to come here to buy her lingerie and clothes. Indeed for decades this shop supplied the wealthy inhabitants of La Rochelle, and especially the ladies, with all the latest and best in fashion.


This ghost sign was written twice. The original dark letters were replaced by much more visible red ones with an ocre shadow.

This ghost sign is slowly disappearing as the paint cracks more and more.

Location: Rue des merciers, La Rochelle, Charente-Maritime / Pictures taken on: 18/08/2011
