Paris Set Me Free - Paris Photo Quiz 10 - 'Mystery in the Gallery'


Quiz No. 10: 'Mystery in the Gallery'

Question: "Where are we, and what are we looking at?

Are you surprised to find a great British institution (******** and Company?) nestling in the heart of one of Paris' most prestigious hidden passages?

Or maybe it's just sneaky old Sab trying to pull the cashmere over your eyes yet again...

OK, I'll be good to you and give you a clue: it's NOT the most famous English language bookshop in Paris. Does that make it any easier?

So what do you think is the complete version of the suspiciously English-looking snippet we can see in the photo above?
And DON'T FORGET: The first few Paris fans to leave comments will all receive a couple of wonderful, signed Paris Set Me Free bookmarks by post. Those of you who do get a bookmark may be asked to send a cool photo to prove they actually exist (the bookmarks, not the people) and I'll link back to your own site if you've got one for your trouble. Look - it happened to Paris Paul, and it could happen to you too!

Quiz No. 9: 'Bright Ideas at Bedtime' ~ Answer & Winner!

Priscilla from Prissy Mag!
Well done Prissy! You correctly guessed it as follows:
"Ah yes, inventor Charles Pigeon who invented the non-exploding gas lamp. This was taken in the Montparnasse cemetery then. His tomb is as well-known as he is, almost. GREAT PHOTO! Thanks!"
Well gee, thanks! And you're absolutely right, especially about the tomb being more famous than him. If you're ever in the area, anyone, you should go and have a look at it - pretty impressive I can tell you.
What you can't see here is the angel standing at the head of the bed which is also spectacular. He knew how to go out in a blaze of glory, did old Mr. Pigeon!

We're at Le Grand Colbert, non?

Hi Alexa - and thanks for taking part! That was a great answer, but not quite complete! I'm looking for details and stories from you guys! Let's see if anyone else can add anything, but I'll award you a couple of Paris Set Me Free bookmarks for solving the sneakiest part :-)

Wow! I'm!) impressed Alexa! Better than I could've done. And Sab, you said you needed me to stop by and comment and look at all the action you're getting! (Just teasing, I'll be better about stopping by in the future, brother!)
