When Meryon etched this plate, he lived only a block away. The image actually comprises three different buildings and three different styles of architectures: at the left is the Medieval and no-longer-extant Collège de Montaigu, at the center the Renaissance church and at the right a part of the Neoclassical Panthéon. The buildings were not as near to each other.
