This is the entrance to St. Lazare, with a glass entrance that evokes Guimard's Art Nouveau fan awning, but in the form of a modern, technologically-infused capsule. No station is exactly the same, and many are in fact thematically decorated. For instance, the stop I frequent the most, Parmentier, currently has a very informative exhibit on the Potato crop and its importance in French history, in honor of the great French potato cultivator, Antoine Augustin Parmentier. The Louvre-Rivoli station, displays replicas of many of the artworks found at the Louvre. The walls of the Concorde station are filled with scrabble-like tiles, spelling out the Declaration of the Rights of Man and of the Citizen.
