I saw two young men waving red flags in front of a condo sales office on my way to the dentist. I was surprised to see the waiting room of the sales office crowded with people. The next day I read in the newspaper that tax breaks for property buyers expire today.

Cours Mirabeau 25/06/2015 12h25

A rendez-vous on the Cours Mirabeau in Aix-en-Provence.

 

Cours Mirabeau

The Cours Mirabeau is a wide thoroughfare in Aix-en-Provence, France.

440 meters long and 42 meters wide, the Cours Mirabeau is one of the most popular and lively places in the town. It is lined with many cafés, one of the most famous being Les Deux Garçons and during its history frequented by famous French cultural figures such as Paul Cézanne, Émile Zola and Albert Camus.

The street has wide sidewalks planted with double rows of plane-trees. The Cours Mirabeau is decorated by fountains, the most notable of which is La Rotonde, a large fountain that makes up a roundabout at one end of the street. The street also divides Aix into two portions, the Quartier Mazarin, or "new town", which extends to the south and west, and the Ville comtale, or "old town", which lies to the north with its wide but irregular streets and its old mansions dating from the 16th, 17th and 18th centuries.

From 1646 onwards, rich locals started moving into the Mazarin quarter, built by Michele Mazzarino (1605 - 1648), known as "Michel Mazarin", the Dominican who was appointed Archbishop of Aix-en-Provence in 1645 by Pope Innocent X. Mazzarino had been professor of theology at the College of Saint Thomas, the future Pontifical University of Saint Thomas Aquinas, Angelicum in Rome, and Master of the Sacred Palace under Pope Urban VIII in 1642. Mazzarino was also the brother of Giulio Mazzarino, known as "Jules Mazarin" who served as chief minister under Louis XIV of France.

In 1650, the Provence Parliament commissioned the building of a thoroughfare for carts where there was a crumbled rempart. The idea was for it to become the new place of dalliance for Aix dwellers, instead of the place des Prêcheurs.

The thoroughfare cost 100,000 pounds, and was paid for by property buyers, the town (15,000 pounds), Provence communes (20,000 livres) and the Duke of Vendôme, Louis de Mercœur.

A long enclosure closed off by remparts, town houses were gradually built on each side. A balustrade would look to fields and gardens downwards.

By 1696 four fountains had been built : Fontaine des 9 canons, Fontaine "Moussue, Fontaine du Roi René and, to the west, "les Chevaux-Marins", now vanished.

Whilst he first thought of building a palace there, the Duke of Vendôme came around and decided on the 'wildness of fields'. Instead he commissioned the Pavillon Vendôme, where he died in 1669. His son, Louis Joseph de Vendôme, sold their part of the Cours Mirabeau back to Pierre de Creissel, who sold it again to four buyers, thus dividing it into four town houses.

In 1876, Mac-Mahon signed a decree for it to be named after Honoré Gabriel Riqueti, comte de Mirabeau.

Cours Mirabeau | Les Deux Garçons 02/06/2013 14h01

The Cours Mirabeau is a wide avenue, planted with double rows of plane-trees, bordered by fine houses and decorated by fountains. It follows the line of the old city wall and divides the town into two sections. The new town extends to the south and west; the old town, with its narrow, irregular streets and its old mansions dating from the 16th, 17th and 18th centuries, lies to the north. Along this avenue, which is lined on one side with banks and on the other with cafés, is the Deux Garçons, the most famous brasserie in Aix. Built in 1792, it has been frequented by the likes of Paul Cézanne, Émile Zola and Ernest Hemingway.

With the completion of the new sports hub close by, this old condo estate will soon be a popular choice for property buyers. You'll also get to enjoy a panorama landscape of the Marina Bay District from here with a full view of Gardens by the Bay and the Singapore Flyer. Thanks to Edward Tan for the notification of my error. It should be Costa Rhu instead of pebble Bay which I mentioned earlier.

The TX1 by London Taxis International went into production in 1997 to replace the LTI Fairway, which itself was based on the iconic Austin FX4 from 1958. This one was new in May 1998, which means that if it hasn't had its 20th birthday yet, it will do soon. It's now being used by a real estate agency, presumably to ferry around potential property buyers. The livery it's wearing looks like an advert it might have worn in service.

 

The TX1 was succeeded by the TX2 around 2002, and then the TX4 around 2007. Both retained this body style, with few visual differences between them. The TX2 is not popular at all with cab drivers, and is infamous for its weak and unreliable Ford engine. The TX4 is more appreciated, but still falls short of the TX1's veneration, and is now made in China and suffers with build quality issues (what a surprise).

 

My dad bought a new TX1 in 1998 and drove it almost every day as a cab and a car until mid-2014, when it had no less than 400,000 miles on the clock and a bad radiator. A lot of cabbies will say that the TX1 was the best they ever had. It was a good improvement over the Fairway, and in a different league to the FX4, which was quite antiquated at that point and riddled with problems. Both this and the Fairway are powered by a 2.7 litre Nissan 4 cylinder turbo diesel, which is very reliable, and also one of the best sounding diesels I've heard.

 

What killed these is the same thing that killed the early low floor buses: age and emissions. TfL (I think) impose an age limit of 15 years for taxis, but thanks to a loophole, they can be licensed by the carriage office for a 16th year. The last time I saw a TX1 must've been around February or March, and that one was 51 registered. The oldest cabs I've seen recently have been 52 / 03 registered (not that I've been paying great attention), so the TX1s may have gone completely.

Of all the strange spectacles that have been seen along the Jersey Shore over the years during summer days gone by, none may be weirder than the sight of a six-story tall elephant lumbering down our coastline. But that’s exactly what was witnessed this very week forty-five years ago along Atlantic Avenue in the tiny city of Margate, located just south of Atlantic City.

 

Historic LucyOriginally named “Elephant Bazaar,” the 65 foot high, 60 foot long, and 18 foot wide building was the brainchild of a real estate speculator named James V. Lafferty, who began building the pachyderm in 1881 in an effort to attract tourists and potential property buyers. The U.S. Patent Office granted Lafferty a patent giving him the exclusive right to make, use or sell animal-shaped buildings for 17 years. He commissioned Philadelphia architect William Free to design the building and hired a Philadelphia contractor to constructed the structure at a cost of between 25 and 38-thousand dollars. Lafferty would escort his perspective customers up to the howdah carriage at the top of the structure to point out parcels of available land for sale.

 

Lucy, as the elephant would come to be known later in her life, was truly a magnificent creature, and began attracting the curious almost immediately. People came from far and wide to gander at and venture within the humongous sheet metal and timber beast. The building is made of nearly one million pieces of wood, has 22 windows, including two round eyes, and its construction required 200 kegs of nails, 4 tons of bolts and iron bars, and 12,000 square feet of tin to cover the outside. While Lucy’s physical features were modeled after a male Asian elephant, today she is generally considered to be female.
