A street sign baked by the sun on rue d’Aboukir.

An extremely dilapidated street sign on rue d’Aboukir at the corner of rue Montmartre. Rue d’Aboukir was named in memory of the French army’s victory over the Ottoman Empire, July 25th 1799. The rest of the façade is equally weather-beaten; hover over the picture with your mouse cursor to see the sign in context.
