Jardin de l'Acclimatation

This pigeon house (pigeonnier) in Jardin de l'Acclimatation
was used during the siege of Paris in 1870
to send messages by carrier pigeon.

I do not know if pigeons are in
residence there today

Jardin de l'Acclimatation
Bois de Boulogne
75116, Paris

Knock on the door and find out! Great looking tower.

Wow, Genie, this is a great view.
Nice job!

It's a structure that would be hard to find here!

I want to rent the top floor and the attic !

Well, the top floor would certainly have an excellent view of the garden and the woods that encompass Bois de Boulogne.

Hummmmm... great idea!

Fascinating bit of history (and a great shot too).
