France Maison des Pianos (visited 11/2016)

Recommended Posts

After only one and a half hours of sleep, I drove to France in the middle of the night. After a three-hour trip, I arrived quite tired at sunrise, climbed back over the wall and went through the bushes to the house.

 

It belonged to a musician and was probably abandoned in the 80s. That’s all I know about it.

Three years ago, the house was ransacked and very messy, as can bee seen on older photos on the Internet. Meanwhile, other photographers have tidied up there again.

 

Inside there was still a lot to see: two pianos, an organ, fireplaces, peeled paint, furniture and lots of little things. I really liked the place a lot.

      The place, called "little Lutece", the ancient name of Paris, was a holiday park with an Asian restaurant, a villa and other buildings.
      Unfortunately, I don't know when it was built, opened or closed.

      This was our first Metz German Fortification of the day and it did not disappoint. GF L'Yser is filled with murals and paintings, which are incredible and fortunately survive after nearly 100 years. Visited with @flat and a few other non-members

      History:

      The Feste Prinz Regent Luitpold, renamed Group Fortification Yser after 1919, is a military installation near Metz that was constructed between 1907 and 1914. It is part of the second fortified belt of forts of Metz and formed part of a wider program of fortifications called "Moselstellung", encompassing fortresses scattered between Thionville and Metz in the valley Moselle. The aim of Germany was to protect against a French attack to take back Alsace-Lorraine and Moselle from the German Empire. The fortification system was designed to accommodate the growing advances in artillery since the end of XIXth century. Based on new defensive concepts, such as dispersal and concealment, the fortified group was to be, in case of attack, an impassable barrier for French forces. 

      During The Annexation of Alsace-Lorraine, the fort receives a garrison of gunners belonging to the XVIth Army Corps. From 1914-1918, it served as a relay for the German soldiers at the front post. Its equipment and weapons are then at the forefront of military technology. In 1919, the fort was occupied by the French army. After the departure of French troops in June 1940, the German army reinvests the fort. In early September 1944, at the beginning of the Battle of Metz, the German command integrates the fort into the defensive system set up around Metz.

      Must go back
