Monnier House - Expo Liege 1905

Monnier House at the Exhibition Expo Liege 1905
The lock keeper's house

The little Monnier house, located on the tip of the peninsula, whose bower, cradles and rustic tables sheltered the Sunday escapades of the Bohemians of the good old days. Monnier had seen his guinguette eaten away by ivy and wisteria, replaced by an elegant modern-style villa, built on a level, regular plot of land, supported by high walls, bordered by elegant railings, and he, who previously had only the light of the moon or the soft glow of the stars to reveal himself in the evening, now possessed a large electric lighthouse which flooded him with light in the evening. The only vestige of the old situation was a large tree surrounded by a flowerbed lined with small rocks.
