Geocache Description:


Rue Didot

La rue Didot est une rue du 14e arrondissement de Paris, en France, qui relie le boulevard Brune à la rue du Château. Elle tire son nom de la famille Didot, dynastie d'imprimeurs, éditeurs et typographes français

Rue Didot is a street in the 14th district of Paris. The street is named after the family Didot, a dynesty of French printers, punch-cutters and publishers. Through its achievements and advancements in printing, publishing and typography, the family has lent its name totypographic measurements developed by François-Ambroise Didot and the Didot typeface developed by Firmin Didot.


 

The cache is also placed just above the Chemin de fer de Petite Ceinture (French for "little belt railway") was a Parisian railway that, from 1852, was a circular connection between Paris' main railroad stations within the fortified walls of the city. In a partial state of abandonment since 1934, the tracks (and some stations) still remain along much of its right-of-way, and the future of its yet-undeveloped property is the subject of much debate as of 2011. Many French railway enthusiasts nostalgically regard the Petite Ceinture as a surviving element of bygone era, and there are several associations whose aim is to protect the abandoned railway and its remaining stations as part of France's national heritage.

 

On almost the same spot there was another cache earlier Georges' Window, but this cache is not hidden in the same way. If you have your eyes and your cache instinct with you you will find it in seconds. But it is rather special, and I have not seen others like it in Paris. Happy Hunting :-)
