LE LOUVRE TURNS ON ITS CHARM


We're back! We have just returned from several weeks in France and thought we might share a daily photograph from the land of croissants, bonjours and bon amis.  

We begin with the city of lights, Paris. Le Louvre with its unmistakable contemporary glass pyramid contrasted against the medieval Palais du Louvre turned on its charm at dusk. What was better the magic of dusk in the main courtyard or the treasures housed inside the Louvre? We could not decide. We were in awe of both. 

Join us on our photographic journey through Paris, Lyon and Avignon.  Bon Vivant from Mr & Mrs J.

We send a big Merci Beaucoup to Genie (Paris and Beyond) and Virginia (Paris Through My Lens) for all the travel tips. They were a great help.

FLINDERS STREET STATION


On 11 January 1922 an article appeared in the Argus under the banner "World's Busiest Station".  It reported that it was generally understood among railway men that Flinders Street Station was the busiest in the world in respect to the number of trains handled, and one of the first three in the world as regards the number of passengers arriving and departing on an ordinary working day.  It still seems pretty busy to me.  Cheers J.
