LE PROCOPE: HISTORIC CAFES AND BRASSERIES OF PARIS

Bookmark and Share

George Sand, Honore de Balzac, Voltaire and Jean-Jacques Rousseau. Robespierre, Danton and Marat used the café as a pre-revolution meeting place. Napoleon Bonaparte drank coffee here, and when Benjamin Franklin died in 1790, the café was draped in black. If walls could talk…

While the existing set in place is exceptional - a shelf regarding items as a result of Apple past is actually interesting. コーチポーチ http://www.kabanstore.biz/コーチバッグ-c-36.html
