  • Description

    A PART OF PARISIAN HISTORY WAS BURIED BENEATH THE RELENTLESS ADVANCE OF MODERN PROGRESS YESTERDAY, WHEN THE WORKMEN WITH ROADMAKING MACHINES BEGAN LAYING ASPHALTE OVER THE COBBLESTONE STREETS OF THE LATIN QUARTER.

    BURIED BENEATH THE NEW-LAID TARMAC ARE THE COBBLESTONES THAT HAVE TRADITIONALLY BEEN THE PRINCIPAL SOURCE OF AMMUNITION WHENEVER PARIS HAS TAKEN TO THE BARRICADES - AND WERE MOST RECENTLY USED BY RIOTING STUDENTS DURING THE OCCUPATION OF THE SORBONNE.

    BUT OFFICIALLY THERE IS NO SINISTER MOTIVE BEHIND THE RESURFACING OF SUCH FAMOUS STREETS AT THE RUE DE LA SORBONNE AND THE BOULEVARD SAINT GERMAIN, IT'S JUST PROGRESS.
