Rouen

The Gros Horloge, as the clock is called, is in an area where there are plenty of old buildings.

You can see where post 1945 the town rebuilt the areas where it was heavily bombed in the days around D-Day 1944.

But many still there in the area near the clock and the cathedral.

These interesting ladies adorn the wall of an adjacent building now an optician's shop.



Adjacent to the Gros Horloge is this pair of buildings and the narrow alley.

You just don't 'see' architecture like that anymore.

See - opticians.... never mind, I have my own brand of humor sometimes.
