Description

Rue Saint-Vincent is a street in the 18th arrondissement of Paris, lying partly in Old Montmartre. The name St. Vincent originates from the name of a former owner of the land, the farmer Vincent Compoint, and the original path of the street prior to its naming was noted on the Jouvin de Rochefort map of 1672.

In 1790, Montmartre was located just outside the limits of Paris. That year, under the revolutionary government of the National Constituent Assembly, it became the commune of now-famous Montmartre, with its town hall located on place du Tertre, site of the former abbey.

In this image, David culp captures the low-profile buildings with weathered exteriors and a quiet, still street, dotted here and there with simple lanterns.
