Huh.

No Baron Haussmann in this Paris. The medieval city plan is still there in 1903.

...how do I manage to get that across without just coming out and saying it? Oh, wait, I know.

Also, I know the Paris Metro opened in 1900. Anybody have any idea when the street lights of La Ville-lumière went in, in our world?

Why yes, this does have something to do with the title of the novella. *g*
