The Sunday street market at Marché d'Aligre had a special treat the day we visited. All of the posts along the street (everywhere in Paris) were decorated. Some were simple, others, quite artistic, and the one above just perfect.
The firemen (les pompiers) were selling calendars and probably had decorated this pole. I have some others to show you another day (have to figure out how to produce a collage first).
