What was the original name of the Place de la Concorde? Why was the Tuileries palace so called and when was it destroyed? Who built the Palais Royal? Find the answers to these questions and many others in this fascinating new book, which gives you the history behind the names of all the Metro stations in Paris. Arnold Delaney's text is full of illuminating insights into hidden corners of the history of the world's most elegant city. The text is complemented by color photography that takes a slightly idiosyncratic look at the city as well as giving a taste of the quintessential design and feel of the Metro system. -- From publisher description.
