Colonne de Juillet
(July Column)


Seen from the street below, the gilded "spirit of freedom"
appears ready to take flight into the blue sky


This towering Corinthian-styled column is topped with 
Auguste Dumont's "Génie de la Liberté" 
built between 1835 and 1840 to commemorate 
the 1830 revolution
