Cours du Commerce Saint-André


This charming passage was opened in the mid-1700s 
linking the rue Saint-André des Arts and the Rue de l'Ancienne Comédie. 
 It houses the Procope café, a meeting place for writers and intellectuals of that era.


 In a granary here, M. Guillotin tried out his "philanthropic decapitating machine"
on sheep (1790).  I do not believe that there is a marker or any evidence of such in this gallery.  (thankfully!)
