Photographer's Note

Abbesses is a station of the Paris Métro.
Abbesses is one of the few deep stations of Paris métro, at 36 metres (118 feet) below ground, as it is located on western side of the butte (hill) of Montmartre.
The station's entrance, designed by Hector Guimard (1867–1942), is one of only two original Guimard entrances left in Paris. (The other is located at Porte Dauphine.) The entrance was originally used for the Hôtel de Ville metro station, but transferred to its current location in 1970.
