That whole quarter has totally changed it's layout but it would be closest to the junction of the present day Rue Mondetour and Rue Rambuteau. https://maps.google.de/maps?q=rue%20mon ... a=N&tab=wl

thanks. I've been told one of the reasons they changed the layout and widened the streets was to make it harder for them to be barricaded. but that street still looks pretty barricad-able in my view. Anyone up for it?

Nah, it's pretty wide, and almost open on one side.

If you're interested in this sort of stuff, a lot of your homework has already been done for you... http://www.chanvrerie.net/tourguide/index.html I need to do a major update to that page, though, because I have a pile of photos of Digne and some more of Montreuil-sur-Mer and a bunch of Paris locations that aren't on there and I could've sworn I'd updated it with some of them.

Wow, I don't know how I've never come across that page before! :shock: Especially considering my "plotting hypothetical trips to Paris" phase of a couple of months ago. Thanks so much for sharing :)
