Water & Gas For All

Forgive me and indulge my folly for an instant. Here we see a rare 'Eau & Gaz à tous les étages' plaque proudly complementing number 23 rue Dévinez Laquelle in Paris.

In my engaging personal quest for Paris curiosities, I must admit that I've been both surprised and just a tiny bit disappointed to discover that there are quite a few of these 'double whammy' plaques if you know where to look.

There are hundreds of 'Gaz à tous les etages' plaques all over the city, but I thought that the 'gas and water on every floor' ones were rarer than they actually are. I reckon I'm up to about 5 or 7 sightings now. I'll have to get my list up to date.

From an aesthetic point of view, this one's particularly pleasing. Red, green and blue. What could be better, for us obsessives of the little or not so little screen in the corner of the living room? Have a colourful day, y'all!
