Jouets du Temple

This rusted, faded metal sign on the rue du Temple declares that number 101 was once les fabriques jouets du Temple (the toymakers of the Temple). Although it's not strictly a ghost sign, as it isn't painted onto a wall, the textures and muted colours speak appealingly of its long service above the street. Today, the building contains not a factory but an importer of, among other goods, toys.
