Printemps Haussmann

Printemps (“spring” in French) is a French department store. The flagship Printemps store is located on Boulevard Haussmann in the IXe arrondissement of Paris. A remarkable feature of the Haussmann store is an elaborate cupola above the main restaurant in the store, installed during the 1923 reconstruction. In 1975, the façade and cupola of the building were registered as historical monuments.   (excerpts from Wikipedia)
