Planned Paris metro station. 19th-century artwork showing one of the planned stations for an underground train network (tubular tramway) in Paris, France. This is part of the proposals made by French engineer Jean-Baptiste Berlier (1841-1911). His initial plans were not implemented, though he was involved in the development of the Paris Metro which began construction in 1898. The first stations opened in 1900, including this one, the Place de l'Etoile, below the Arc de Triomphe (upper left). Artwork from the first volume (1897) of 'La Revue Scientifique et Industrielle' by French chemist and inventor Jules-Louis Breton (1872-1940).
