Trip report: Paris' unexplored curiosities, part 4

The latest installment of this series is coming a year later than once planned - you all know why. It continues my extended project to walk the whole city, by arrondissement, using two books (the excellent "Unexplored Paris," and the extraordinary "Curiosities of Paris") and their locations as the touch points for the itinerary. Previous installments can be found using the last one, at Paris' unexplored curiosities, part 3. I arrived in the city in early July, as some of the restrictions were being lifted, and spent two weeks, thus leaving before the recent health pass requirements went into effect.

As usual, the report is in the form of captioned photo albums:

As I always say, creating these albums allows me to take the trip again, in a sense, and so is a real pleasure. And photos, even of Paris, without context, are often lacking to me - so taking that time is something I would want from others, and in fact get from the best contributors like kerouac. So, the best choice for me is to offer that in return.

I like your photo of the door on Avenue Rapp. I recently photographed the same door.

To the upper right of the image should be a lower case i in a circle - at least on Windows systems - which will bring up the caption if not already present.. On my Android smartphone, clicking on the three dot menu bar on the upper right above the picture drops down to the caption. Can't help on notebooks and Apple products.

On my macBook if i click on an individual
photo, it brings up the comment at the bottom, and clicking on "more" brings up the full comment in a box on the R of the screen which then remains there for other photos.

I must have not tapped hard or slow enough yesterday because today I see both the ďiĒ and the ďmore.Ē Except when it disappears; then I tap lightly in the black void and it comes back, lol. Anyway thank you both!

So glad it worked for you, YankyGal.
