_________________________ Les Puces du Canal | Lyon, France | c. 1995 • Les Puces is a well known flea market located on the outskirts of Lyon, on the Jonage Canal. It is one of the most famous Sunday activities for many in the area, drawing in 500,000 visitors per year and between 5000 and 8000 per week • Lyon is the third-largest city and second-largest urban area of France. It is located in the country's east-central part at the confluence of the rivers Rhône and Saône, about 470 km (292 mi) south from Paris, known for its cuisine and gastronomy, and historical and architectural landmarks; part of it is a registered as a UNESCO World Heritage site • With more than 400 exhibitors showcasing their wares in the northeastern suburb of Villeurbanne, Les Puces is France's second-biggest flea market. The face-lifted Hangar where the market is today located brings together reputed antique dealers, showcasing a large variety of antiques from the 16th to 20th centuries • Originally located at Place Riviere in Villeurbanne, Les Puces left their historic site in the early 1970s. They then moved to the Feyssine, but were forced once again to move because of the construction of the northern ring road. • Since its inauguration in September 1995, thanks to Denise David et Jean-Pierre Gaboriaux, Les Puces du Canal very quickly won the hearts of many locals. Today, its new president, Stephan Blanchet, together with site manager Jerome Balme, have numerous projects in mind to inject more dynamism into Les Puces, while safeguarding its DNA • 📷: @tiphaine._ ✍: @wikipedia + @lonelyplanet + france3-regions.francetvinfo.fr • #AccidentallyWesAnderson #WesAnderson #VscoArchitecture #Vsco #AccidentalWesAnderson #Travelmore #LesPucesduCanal #IloveLyon #JonageCanal #LyonCity #France🇫🇷

________________________ New Buffalo Light | New Buffalo, Michigan | c. 1840 • In 1834, the schooner 'Post Boy’ lead by Captain Wessel Whittaker ran aground near what is now called State Creek off Lake Michigan. While enroute to shelter in Michigan City, he discovered a place that inspired him and three years later, Whittaker convinced his employers to invest $13,000 to buy the land, naming it New Buffalo • It was newest town along the Lake Michigan shore. As buildings went up, Whitaker and other founders lobbied the government for a lighthouse. They felt emboldened by the nearby citizens of St. Joseph who had built their own lighthouse in 1831, and Michigan City which had recently finished theirs in 1837. • A site for the lighthouse was selected, and the same man who constructed the Michigan City lighthouse was contracted to complete the job. It was designed to be a near replica of Michigan City Light, but when construction ended, the results were alarming as the lighthouse was virtually inoperable. The tower dome leaked, soaking the lamps and their reflectors • On January 3, 1840, New Buffalo appointed Thomas S. Smith as its first lighthouse keeper, paying him an annual salary of $350, but instead of serving his duties, he lived in his own home seventeen miles away and hired someone else to perform his contracted duties, pocketing the additional funds • For 21 years the New Buffalo Light was used as a source of government money and political favors. And for those reasons it had been the focus of numerous official requests to abolish the station. So in August 1859 the government officially shut the lighthouse, and it was subsequently destroyed by erosion. A small replica of the lighthouse was built in the mid 1900s and still stands today at the entrance to New Buffalo City Beach • 📸: @botunberg ✍: @wikipedia + @sharonpisacreta + lakeeffectliving.com • #AccidentallyWesAnderson #AWATravel #WesAnderson #VscoArchitecture #Vsco #AccidentalWesAnderson #Travelmore #NewBuffalo #Michigan #GalienRiver #NewBuffaloCityBeach
