Note(s)The record on the collection of the French Ministry of Foreign Affairs reads as follows: "Abri à l'angle de la Rue Kraetzer et du Boulevard de Montigny", but it is unlikely this can be Rue Kraetzer. From the angle of the photograph, it is indeed boulevard de Montigny, with the Great World in the background. The tracks at the intersection, however, point to a major thoroughfare, in this case Avenue Edward VII.
