A Reminder of Paris' Past Landscape
Images of Moulin Rouge and the neighboring Moulin de la Galette are reminders that the Eiffel Tower and Haussmann style buildings didn’t always dominate Paris’ cityscape. At one time in the city's history, hundreds of mills filled the Parisian landscape. Moulin de la Galette in Montmartre was named for a brown bread called galette that the mill's owners used to make. In the 19th century, this windmill was a popular hangout for artists such as Renoir who memorialized it in his painting, "Bal du moulin de la Galette," his most important work of the mid-1870's.
