Worker housing estates

Rue des Oiseaux is the main access to the «passages» leading to the workers housing estate. The estate was laid out to an octagonal plan. Building work started in 1851 and each family had a dwelling with an individual entrance and small garden. An instalment plan enabled them to buy their own homes.
