in the National Conservatory of Arts and Crafts (the CNAM) there is a terrific collection of cars and pioneering vehicles


the airplane is a wonderful 1909 Bleriot! I'm happy about that, as I posted about Bleriot http://justacarguy.blogspot.com/2013/12/louis-bleriot-inventor-of-1st-practical.html


Since its foundation, the museum has been housed in the deserted priory of Saint-Martin-des-Champs, in the rue Réaumur in the 3rd arrondissement of Paris.




if I remember correctly, this is the first self propelled vehicle, the Cugnot, 1771














Thanks Phil!I really appreciate these photos, I've never heard of this place http://www.arts-et-metiers.net/musee/decouverte-des-collections-du-musee
