Well that is a coincidence Iain. Unless your a mind reader. I'm reading a book about the great European sleeper trains (I loved them back in the day) and there are plenty of descriptions of the great Parisian railway termini. It's nice to have an image to go with all those words. ( I still think it's art!).Interesting H - I never would have called this picture as being taken by H.C.B - stylistically he and Sutkus are very different. Sartre is a lot easier to recognise if you see him face on. Talking of H.C.B - 'Behind the Gare Saint-Lazare,' - 1932. It would take me a while to find a picture that is better composed than this.

@Barry Giddens - the photographer said of this picture - 'Photography is just luck. There was a fence, and I poked my camera through the fence. It’s a fraction of a second.' A man after my own heart. cheers - I.
