Time for yet another paper on Haussmannization. When will they end? Maybe when I stop going back to architecture school. Anyway, this is a solid overview of Baron Haussmann's role in the overhaul of Paris c. 1850-1870. Insufficient attention is paid to the sewers, but I guess a girl can't have it all.
