The building at N° 9 was executed by the business man R. Feuga and property owner P. Mathieu in 1822 and then sold to a merchant of Paris in 1827. The originality of the façade is in the French windows which are crowned with a frieze, decorated with a smooth table and a cornice, and supported by flat consoles that extend to reveal the window-frames in the eighteenth-century style. Built in 1811, N° 10 offers a smooth base and tall rectangular bays of the new style. On the upper floors, the link between the cornice ceiling and the bay supports accentuates the verticality fashionable in the eighteenth century.
