Photographer's Note

La Villette, under the Grande Halle.

The Grande Halle de la Villette is a building consisting of structures in structural iron and cast iron built between 1865 and 1867 in the district of La Villette in Paris, and currently located Place de la Fontaine aux Lions in the Parc de la Villette. It was listed as historical monuments by a decree of 2 March 19791.
Old "hall with oxen," it was the largest of the three halls selling cattle and only one to have been preserved in its original location. Covering an area of ​​20,000 m2, was designed by the architect Jules M廨indol, student of Victor Baltard, assisted by Louis-Adolphe January (1815-1888). The other two smaller halls around him have now been displaced. The Great Hall has been renovated twice since the creation of the Parc de la Villette, between 1983 and 1985 and between 2005 and 2007. It lies at the southern entrance of the park (Porte de Pantin).
