BONUS: For Street Photography Fans!

The funny thing about this street is that there weren't never no goddamn cute little musk deer grazing lazily around the back streets of Paris. Far from it. Unless you're into some severely twisted metaphors.

So whence such a charming name? Prostitutes, my dears.

The street had become know as something along the lines of Pute Y Muse, which basically means 'Here be whores', which as you can imagine was somewhat less glamorous than the new city planners were hoping for.

Hence the quaintly phonetic transmogrification to keep everyone happy.

Cute little whores' street. Now there's one for the notebook...

And why not...
