For this month's angel, Rosemary writes:

Angels appear in the most astonishing places in Paris. Here, on the stone facade of a beautiful Belle Epoque building dedicated to the "General Association of Trade and Industry of Fabrics and Textile Materials," a fanciful scene featuring Mercury, god of commerce, holding his caduceus and a spinning wheel, and a lightly dressed, smiling muse with charming angels floating by on either side offering gifts.

Several establishments and organizations related to the textile and clothing industry occupy this building, designed by architect Gaston Ernest in 1908. The cherubs add a tender and unexpected touch to this commercial narrative, enhanced by a cornucopia, symbol of abundance, overflowing with fruit and flowers.

Business center
8, rue Montesquieu (corner of 18, rue des Bons-Enfants)
