More Life On The Seine

 In her book The Seine Elaine Sciolino talks about the old days when families lived on the Seine, earning their living from what they could do with their boats; those boats were also their homes.

Then she points out that even today, not a universally obvious thing, people live and work on the river.

Earlier today I posted some images of boats and people living on the Seine.

Then I got to remembering: I have some pictures of some other people who work on the Seine.

They are hard to get images of; they are usually moving at 40 miles per hour.

They have a dock just off Quai Bernard down by le Jardin des Plantes.

This one is actually the Rome Cops on the Tiber.  They are less industrial strength than their Paris counterparts.
