Le bistrot du peintre

We'd walked past it a dozen or more times, always vowing to have a drink and a look around. It's one of several neighborhood cafe/bar/bistros we've seen, dating from the Belle Epoche, and, so far as we could tell, completely un-renovated or changed from that time. It was another glorious Paris evening, and we finally stopped for our drinks and look around. In the 11th, corner of Rue Charonne and Avenue Ledru Rollin. Established 1902. We had walked all the way from Notre Dame up through the Ile St. Louis, stopping twice for ice cream, and more or less final shopping, past the Bastille...not the first time for such a walk, either.
