Roaring 20’s actress and femme fatale Pola Negri can be seen at the now long forgotten tree house restaurant bar – Robinson Pavillon Lafontaine.
“Robinson” was a popular guinguette ( a bar where you could drink and dance outdoors).
This image of her is is often mistakenly cited as being at Cafe de la Paix, which is also featured earlier.

The popularity of the treehouse restaurants, lasted through the Belle Époque up to and beyond the 1920’s. It was located at 32 Rue de Malabry, in a small district Le Plessis-Robinson, south of the city.
