  • Description

    The "Viaduct d'Auteuil" built under Napoleon III 99 years ago for the train which was going all around Paris called "Petite ceinture "ancestor of the Metro, is being destroyed.

    This destruction decided a few years ago was postponed for a question of credit until now.

    The Viaduct down a large avenue with trees and gardens will embellish this district of Paris.

    The main destructions are done by a crane swinging a weight of 1.170 Kg. called a pear method inherited from the Romans when they were using a battering- ram to fallen down the walls of the cities to be occupied.
