Pierre Folk - By the silent line

One of the greatest vestiges - however unknown - of the Industrial Revolution lies in Paris. Chemin de fer de Petite Ceinture (French for “Little Belt Railway”) is a dormant railroad track, a 32km path surrounding the city of light. Since its access has been closed the rails remain anonymous, belonging to a forgotten past.

Yet, la Petite Ceinture had its time of glory. In early 19th Century France, the various Parisian railway networks were not connected, and transfers were horse-drawn as the City of Light didn’t have large boulevards yet. The project became a necessity to facilitate the circulation of both goods and people. Its construction, seen as an invitation to progress, started in 1852. Traffic was already considerable during the very first years, and reached its apogee with the Universal Exhibition featuring the Eiffel Tower in 1901. However, its operation wouldn’t survive the automobile revolution, nor the advent of the underground system. Indeed, urban passenger service was discontinued from 1934.

Now, this dormant system has become overgrown and forgotten - an intimate place where the past and modernity make their acquaintance.

Fun fact: if you approach an employee and insist that they go ‘check the back’ for an item that’s not on the shelf, there is a 90% chance that they’ll go to the back room, scratch their ass and check their text messages for five minutes, and come back out with a sympathetic smile and a ‘Sorry!’ because they know without even looking that the stock isn’t there.

Having worked at two retail jobs, I can tell you that this is bullshit. Unless you’re actually someone tasked with inventory, it’s pretty likely they’re genuinely checking for stock.
