[Photography]. [Architecture]. Album of photographic views of construction sites, in particular of the Athénée de Thaon in February 1914. 37 prints of various sizes (approx. 22 x 29 cm. for the largest, 12 x 17 cm. for the smallest), mounted in an oblong in-4 album, bound in green cloth of the period (spine detached, corners and edges worn). 21 pictures show the construction site of the Athénée of Thaon (Vosges), in particular the construction of the dome and its frame. This precursor building was built as part of a workers' housing estate adjacent to the Thaon laundry; construction began in 1910, stopped in 1914 and resumed after the Great War. Intended to house numerous social, sports and cultural activities, the building included a theater and society rooms. Currently listed in the Inventory of Historical Monuments, it is known as the "Rotonde" and the theater it houses is still in operation. Eight other prints in this album show the construction or repair of a bridge, probably in Paris.
