THE GRANDS TRAVAUX OF NAPOLEON III AND BARON HAUSSMANN (1848-71)

When Napoleon III came to power, he was determined to finish the job started by his uncle and turn Paris into a modern city. In his words, he wanted to “aérer, unifier, et embellir” Paris – to open, tie together, and beautify his capital. Georges-Eugène Haussmann was just the man to do it.
