Paris remembers Victor Hugo

Victor Hugo lived in 15 different houses in Paris, and the last road he lived in was renamed after him. The actual house has gone, but today if you pass 124 Avenue Victor Hugo, in the 16th arrondissement, you can tell it’s the site because of this frieze. 600,000 people filed by in 1881 to wish him a happy 80th birthday!
