Historical Cities

A nineteenth-century example in the north of Rue Sala. The building has a private courtyard called "the idlers’ court" which links to 29 Rue Sainte-Hélène. The origin of this court is assigned to a certain Mr Nant who had it built in 1840 when he had engraved on a wall: "Industry and art have changed my fate: I was at the lazy court, I am now at the diligent court." His name became a reference for artists in the area.
