Hameau De La Reine was a retreat for Marie Antoinette and her friends. It was built upon her request in 1783 to experience peasent life without having to leave the safety of the Palace grounds. It included a fully functioning farm used to provide farm to table meals for the Queen and her guests. Royal children were brought here to learn about farming.

As overwhelmed as we all are by such an image, I didn't really want to take a picture of the Eiffel Tower but as nightfall arrived I couldn't resist the magic of this reflection on the grounds of the Trocadero Gardens. The tower was completed in 1889 as the entrance to the World Fair.

Heading south to the Trocadero Gardens in the shadow of the Eiffel Tower we arrive at the Palais de Chaillot where in more recent history the original Musée Du Cinéma was founded by Henri Langlois in 1972. Screenings were held frequently inspiring regulars such as Françios Truffaut, Jean-Luc Godard and Jean-Pierre Léaud of French New Wave Cinema in the 70's.

Pulling out from Point Zero we see the western side of the Île de la Cité, an island in the middle of the Seine river that was the stronghold of medieval Paris. The Pont Neuf (French pronunciation: ​[pɔ̃ nœf], New Bridge) is the oldest standing bridge across the river in Paris, France. Construction was ongoing from 1578 to 1607. Its name, which was given to distinguish it from older bridges that were lined on both sides with houses, has remained.

Piedmont Building and Loan opened in downtown Winston-Salem on January 1st 1904. One of its founding principles was to make home ownership more affordable for waves of immigrants entering the country at a time when mortgages had to be paid off within 5 years. Piedmont Building and Loan helped pave the way toward the 30yr mortgage.

The Pepper Building across the street was built in 1928 as an ornate department store featuring Art Deco styling. It was listed on the National Register of Historic places in 2014 and is currently being renovated to house a hotel and restaurant.
