This very sturdy gateway was once the entrance to the home of Maréchal Foch in 1913, from January until August. Not long but long enough for a claim to fame.
This has seen better days, I think, and it's a shame about all the cables leading in and around the doorway. It was once home to a lawyer, judging by the plaque by the door.
Still sturdy though definitely it has seen better days, this gate will soon lead to 12 new homes, apartments in the original building. In fact, given that this picture was taken a couple of years ago, the homes are almost certainly already complete.
In some cases, the door looks sturdier than the home but in this case the building had been there a long time and is presumably propped up by its next door neighbours.
