Superbe article !

Well documented article of great interest! I was based near Montereau- Fault-Yonne several summers and toured that area thoroughly for painting sites. I was aware of the canals role in hauling wine, but to see the railroad cars and the early trucks vying for the trade that eventually made the canals obsolete. Fortunately, enough pleasure craft use the canals to keep them from disuse and eventual silting in.
I remember the "unused" area of Bercy in the late 80's and its eventual rebuilding into a vast shopping area. I was too late as a visitor there to see the old streets. Many people in Paris go there to shop and have no idea of its history.
Thank you for your research for this very interesting article.
