French SIG #France Re: Which arrondissements for streets in Paris? #france

Eve Line Blum <eve.line.blum@...>

A book concerning the story of the streets of
Paris says that Rue Ste Croix de la Bretonnerie
is the oldest street in Paris (1270). It first
name was "rue de Lagny" or "rue de la
Grande-Bretonnerie". It became "rue
Sainte-Croix-de-la-Bretonnerie" in 1314. Rue
Oberkampf : in the middle of 18th century part of
it was named "chemin de Mesnil-Maudan" or
"Menil-Mautemps" ; another part was named "rueChapus";
a third part was named "rue de la Roulette", and a last part
"rue de la Haute-Borne". These three streets merged and
became only one in 1806 that was named rue de Menilmontant,
and it became rue d'Oberkampf in 1864

Can anyone tell me in which arrondissements the
