Gustave Doré. Né à Strasbourg le 6 janvier 1832, Gustave Doré s'intéresse à la musique et au dessin dès son plus jeune âge: en 1841, il a déjà illustré la Divine Comédie! Pensionnaire au lycée Charlemagne, son premier contrat est signé par son père: à seize ans, il fournit au "Journal pour rire" un dessin par semaine, en exclusivité pour trois ans. Dès 1849, sa mère devenue veuve vient s'installer avec ses trois fils dan cet hôtel de Tavannes, dont le jardin s'étend jusqu'à la rue de Bellechasse. S'il loue parfois des ateliers ailleurs, pour peindre et sculpter, et voyage souvent à l'étranger, Doré habite, dessine et reçoit ici le vaste cercle de ses amis; parmi eux figurent Théophile Gautier, Alexandre Dumas, Nadar ou Sarah Bernhardt. Un article de "la Vie parisienne", daté de 1869, décrit ainsi son installation: "Rien de plus étrange que ce salon-atelier, aux voûtes peintes comme celles d'une chapelle. Aux murs, sur les chevalets, artout, des paysages de la Forêt noire, des burgs ruinés, des lacs déserts, des colonnades de sapins frêles, gigantesques, qui trouent les murailles et font croire à des fenêtres ouvertes sur les bords du Rhin." Deux ans après sa mère, il meurt dans cette maison de famille, le 23 janvier 1883.

English translation: Gustave Doré. Born in Strasbourg on 6 January 1832, Gustave Doré was interested in music and drawing from an early age: in 1841 he had already illustrated the Divine Comedy! A resident of Charlemagne High School, his first contract was signed by his father: at the age of sixteen, he provided the “Journal pour rire” with a drawing per week, exclusively for three years. As early as 1849 his mother, who became a widow, moved with his three sons to this hotel in Tavannes, whose garden stretches to Rue de Bellechasse. While he sometimes rents workshops elsewhere to paint and carve, and often travels abroad, Doré lives, draws and receives here the vast circle of his friends; among them are Théophile Gautier, Alexandre Dumas, Nadar or Sarah Bernhardt. An article in “La Vie Parisienne”, dated 1869, describes its installation as follows: “Nothing more strange than this living-workshop, with vaults painted like those of a chapel. At the walls, on the knights, artout, landscapes of the Black Forest, ruined burgs, deserted lakes, colonnades of frail fir, gigantic, which find the walls and make it look like open windows on the banks of the Rhine.” Two years after his mother, he died in that family home on 23 Jan. 1883.

Le Théâtre Romain Le théâtre romain, édifié dans les années 40-50 après J.-C., est adossé à la colline de Pipet. Le mur de scène et les bâtiments latéreaux, aussi hauts que les gradins supérieurs, sont rythmés par un décor de colonnes et de statues. L'ensemble forme un espace clos, avec au sommet un couloir semi-circulaire et un petit temple. Au-dessus, la colline de Pipet est aménagée en esplanade sacrée. Le théâtre accueille de représentations destinées à un large public (environ 11000 spectateurs), mais aussi des rassemblements civiques ou officiels. Les spectacles sont offerts par les magistrats locaux pour assurer leur réélection, notamment la famille Astiaticus de Vienne. Un autre édifice l'odéon, construit au IIe siècle au sud du théâtre, est destiné à la musique et à la poésie pour un public plus restreint (2000 spectateurs). Dans le Gaule romaine, seuls Lyon et Vienne possédent un odéon. Abandonné au IVe siècle, le théâtre a servi de carrière de pierres pour toute la ville. Les fouilles et les restaurations sonts menées à partir de 1908 jusqu'à son inauguration en 1938 avec un opéra de Berlioz. Depuis, les programmations estivales ressuscient la fonction divertissant du théâtre : art lyrique, variétés, danses, et depuis 1981 le festival de jazz (début juillet). Une borne interactive dans la log d'accueil présente le monument en quatre temps : «le théâtre romain», «le théâtre oublié», «le théâtre resurgit», «le théâtre revit»

English translation: The Roman Theatre The Roman theatre, built in the years 40-50 AD, is leaned against the hill of Pipet. The stage wall and lateral buildings, as tall as the upper tiers, are punctuated by a decor of columns and statues. The whole forms an enclosed space, with at the top a semicircular corridor and a small temple. Above, the hill of Pipet is arranged as a sacred esplanade.  The theatre hosts performances for a large audience (about 11,000 spectators), as well as civic or official gatherings. The shows are offered by local magistrates to ensure their re-election, especially the Astiaticus family in Vienna. Another building, the Odeon, built in the 2nd century to the south of the theatre, is destined for music and poetry for a more limited audience (2000 spectators). In Roman Gaul, only Lyon and Vienna have an odeon. Abandoned in the 4th century, the theatre served as a stone quarry for the whole city. Excavations and restorations were carried out from 1908 until its inauguration in 1938 with an opera by Berlioz. Since then, the summer programs have resurrected the entertaining function of the theatre: lyrical art, variety, dance, and since 1981 the jazz festival (early July). An interactive kiosk in the welcome log presents the monument in four stages: "the Roman theatre", "the forgotten theatre", "the theatre re-emerges", "the theatre revives"

Town Inns in 1830 In the Rev. J.T. Becher's day there would have been at least eighteen inns with five in King St. alone. To the left of the Admiral Rodney was The Black Bull whose name survives in Bull Yard. To the right was The Portland Arms where the Portland Arcade is today and further right was The Wheatsheaf and White Swan. The Admiral Rodney takes its name from the famous sailor who masterminded the defeat of the Spanish navy in 1780 at Cape St. Vincent. Towns Inns would have been used for a variety of activities. Many people would have been drawn to the premises for meetings of private clubs, public auctions, wrestling and cock fighting.
