As practically everywhere in this city, almost every street, corner or building stirs up exciting historical memories and events, and Rene Lalique's townwhouse (aka Hôtel Lalique) is not an exclusion. The original address was 40, Cours la Reine (this is now renamed Cours Albert, but the street number remains the same). Lalique moved there ca. 1902. Before 1908 the Belle Époque's legendary operatic singer Emma Calvé lived there (French Wikipedia). The mysteruously charismatic world most famous woman spy Mata Hari danced for her there (See Janet Flander’s Paris was Yesterday 1929-1939 (A Harvest/HBJ Book, New York 1972, p. 124).
