Photographer's Note

Les traboules sont des passages à travers des cours d'immeuble qui permettent de se rendre d'une rue à une autre. Les pentes de la Croix-Rousse en regorgent...


Traboules (from Latin transambulare via vulgar Latin trabulare meaning "to cross") are a type of passageway primarily associated with the city of Lyon, France, but also located in the French cities of Villefranche-sur-Saône, Mâcon, Saint-Étienne, along with a few in Chambéry). In Lyon, they were originally used by silk manufacturers and other merchants to transport their products.
