Andrew Sullivan has great success getting people to figure out the location of random photos taken around the world, so I’m going to try it too. Except this is a photo of a painting. It’s signed by someone named J. Gaston, and pretty obviously seems to be a Paris street scene. But is it? And which street? We’re giving this to my sister-in-law in a couple of weeks, and I thought it would be nice if I could tell her what it’s a painting of. Anyone know?

UPDATE: It’s the Porte Saint Martin on St. Martin Boulevard in Paris. Thanks to Rjerrard and Skeptc for the ID. Pictures here and here.

WE'RE TAKING A SHORT BREAK…

from the big banner at the top of our pages asking for the donations that make Mother Jones' nonprofit journalism possible. But we still have upwards of $300,000 to raise by June 30, whether we get there is going to come down to the wire, and we can't afford to come up short.

If you value the reporting you get from Mother Jones and you can right now, please join your fellow readers who pitch in from time to time to keep our democracy-advancing, justice-seeking journalism charging hard (and to help us avoid a real budget crunch as June 30 approaches and our fiscal year ends).
