A French street named after Louise Brooks


The recently came across Impasse Louise Brooks, a short street named after the actress located in Bois d'Arcy, a village outside of Paris not so far from Versailles. Other streets in this new subdivision are named after Greta Garbo, Erich von Stroheim, Charlie Chaplin, Orson Welles, Jean Vigo, Joan Crawford, Georges Méliès, Jacques Tati, Fritz Lang and others. Impasse Louise Brooks intersects with Allèe Marlene Dietrich. Above is the best image I could acquire from Google maps of the street sign.
