Paris 2015: Jules Vallés, 5th arrondissement, Paris

'Dans cet immeuble,
accueilli par Sévéeine,
mourut, le 14 février 1885,
l'écrivain Jules Vallés.'
 
This is on the boulevard Saint-Michel, right opposite the idyllic Luxembourg. The fascinating Séverine, née Caroline Remy (1855–1929) was well known for her left-wing, feminist views. I've made a few previous posts on Vallés (although unfortunately not on Séverine) and shall in the near future be adding links to them.
