Photographer's Note

Rue Mouzaïa is a street located in the quartier Amérique of the 19th arrondissement of Paris. Initially established in 1879, it takes its name from Mouzaïa hill situated in the area of Blida in Algeria, where fighting took place in 1839-1840 between the French troops under General Lamoriciere and the troops of Abd el-Kader during the conquest of Algeria by France.

The street, which is located just above the Parc des Buttes-Chaumont, is served on both sides by a series of alleys flanked by houses and gardens (something quite unusual in Paris), known as villas as well as the Hameau du Danube . On the south side of the street are the villas Alsace, Eugene-Leblanc, Émile-Loubet, Bellevue, Lilas, Sadi-Carnot and Felix-Faure; on the north side, those of Progrès and Renaissance.
