Painted water tower
France

Voici une vue sur le château d'eau peint de Villeneuve d'Ascq (Le Pron).

Il a été construit en 1936. Entièrement blanc dans les années 1980, on lui a rajouté au début des années 2000 trois bandes au dernier étage, une bleue, une jaune et une rouge. En avril 2009, il a été repeint avec un fond de couleur pastel orange à partir du sol, bleu ciel jusqu'au dernier étage. En juin 2009, l'équipe d'Adeline Paule, originaire du Sud-Ouest, a peint sur le château un dessin représentant le cycle de l'eau, depuis le sommet des montagnes jusqu'aux lits des rivières. Ce dessin, réalisé par un écolier Villeneuvois, provient d'un concours lancé par la société des Eaux du Nord en 2007, "Je protège l'eau dans ma ville".

La photo a été prise en juillet 2011, en milieu d'après-midi.

Panorama réalisé en version HDR (enfuse).

More About France

France is affectionately referred to as "the Hexagon" for its overall shape.French history goes back to the Gauls, a Celtic tribe which inhabited the area circa 300BC until being conquered by Julius Caesar.The Franks were the first tribe to adopt Catholic Christianity after the Roman Empire collapsed. France became an independent location in the Treaty of Verdun in (843 AD), which divided up Charlemagne's Carolingian Empire into several portions.The French monarchy reached its zenith during the reign of Louis XIV, the Sun King, who stood for seventy-two years as the Monarch of all Monarchs. His palace of Versailles and its Hall of Mirrors are a splendid treasure-trove of Baroque art.The French Revolution ended the rule of the monarchy with the motto "Liberty, Equality, Fraternity!" On July 14th, 1789 angry mobs stormed La Bastille prison and began the Revolution in which Louis XVI, his wife Marie-Antoinette and thousands of others met the guillotine.One decade after the revolution, Napolean Bonaparte seized control of the Republic and named himself Emperor. His armies conquered most of Europe and his Napoleonic Code became a lasting legal foundation for concepts of personal status and property.During the period of colonization France controlled the largest empire in the world, second only to Britain.France is one of the founding members of the European Union and the United Nations, as well as one of the nuclear armed nations of the world.Text by Steve Smith.
