A L'Esplanade des Invalides
A famous lithographic engraving by oustaunau, showing a "zouave" or French North African soldier relaxing over
an absinthe at a pavement cafe table on the Esplanade des Invalides. It was these absinthe-loving soldiers who brought
the taste for the anise-flavoured drink back with them to France in the mid 19th century.
