This charming view of the Canal St.-Martin with its iron footbridges was done by the early 20th century plein air artist Brayer on a cold November day. This canal connects a larger canal to the Seine and spans two arrondissements, the fourth and the twelfth. During the Haussmanization of Paris, almost half of the Canal St. Martin was covered to make wide boulevards that discouraged revolutionary actions like street blockades.
