78 rue Daumesnil

A police station and residence? I guess you could call it neo-retro-mannerist.  I don’t think this is what Clouzot’s famous address, 36 Quai des Orfèvres, another police station, was like.  Was it a sick joke to make a chorus line of Michelangelo’s Dying Slave on the facade?

Thanks to Jahsonic’s micro-blog for bringing this to my attention.

  1. Looks like a line of saucy chorus girls to me.
