line shaft - belts and pulleys - grands moulins de paris - poulies-et-courroies

The "Grands Moulins de Paris" was an abandoned industrial mill in Paris, near the d'Austerlitz train station.­ It has being converted into student dorms for the University Paris VII.­

I took those photos shortly before the construction work started.­ So what you see on this photo does not exist anymore.­
