A loving tribute to the Paris Metro

To celebrate a 90th anniversary of something to do with the Paris Metro system, photographer Janol Apin has taken a series of black and white photographs depicting the names of the Metro stations. Anything more than that I cannot tell you because the site with the photos is in French.

But the photos are still fantastic, even if you do need to know a smattering of French to get some of the gags.

Looking at these photo today makes me whistful for living in a city with a metro system, and with reading The Flaneur, a book all about Paris and its people, I'm starting to think it's time to pay another visit to Paris.
