and La Tour Eiffel , in the back ground, unique image from  Butte Montmartre.
‘ My village Montmartre’  has tiny, charming back streets to be discovered.
  In the  WW1, #French #military  participated in the  #Balkan area, in Eastern Europe together with their allies. This street , named till 1987 ‘ Rue de  L’Orient’  when it was changed- to render homage to the soldiers of the battles – into ‘Rue de l’Armee de L’Orient’,  with a small theater belonging to a  long-life- successful- famous – theater – film  -French #actor, Michel Galabru ( 1922-2016) – ‘Theatre Galabru’.
At the end of the 19thC,  #Montmartre Village attracted artists, writers, poets from all over Europe.  One of the residents of the village, a young  with a high sense of humor  French #poet and painter,  Max  Jacob (1876-1944)  has a funny idea to ‘ baptize’ a residence where artists had their ‘ petits ateliers  (studios) with the only sink, in  a long corridor,  ‘ Bateau Lavoir’ ( ship with a sink).   ” Bateau Lavoir’ hosted evenings where music, philosophy , poetry, and art works where accompanied by a glass or more of red wine,  a more ‘ intellectual’ spirit than couple of streets downhill at  #MoulinRouge, the famous #cabaret.

‘Bateau Lavoir’ the temple of artists, partially destroyed by a cruel blaze in 1970, can be easily seen from the richly green in chestnut trees, old  old green benches and green ‘ Fontaine Wallace’ ( 1871) in the painting of the #French -Montmartrois #artist  Maurice Utrillo ( 1883-1955) in his work ‘ Place Ravignan’ (1911)
