A Flute de l’Orcq built in 1882 by the Lizy sur Ourcq yard for the narrow guage Paris Canals network of commercial waterways. The network of commercial waterways built by Napoleon and still administered by the “Ville de Paris.” This rare example of Paris canal history has been very professionally converted to a residential barge by a retired French boatman. Take a good look at the photos and see for yourself. A little gem of French canal history.
