Statue d'Haussmann

Statue de Georges Eugène Haussmann, just on the corner with Rue de Laborde, this statues to Baron Haussmann wasn't erected until 1991. Today it is a rare reminder of the importance to the city of this leading city planner, who in the end resigned his post, but not before setting in motion the plans which have lead to modern Paris as we see it today.

On the plinth of the statue it read "Baron G.E. Haussmann, 1809 - 1891 Prefet de la Seine de 1853 a 1870"

Don't miss this chance to see the creator of modern Paris!
