I have been told that the winner of the dot jersey in the Tour de France got his weight in Poulain chocolate. (If you ask me: a safe bet on account of Poulain.)
Both Engrange walls indicate that there was some freedom in the placement of the foal. Usually it jumps over the 'l', but here it comes out of the 'P'. The overview of the wall shows a second foal close to the right border.
Menier (the founder) was a powder maker for pharmacists. He
opened his own shop in 1816 and started selling his chocolate.
Like W. Lever (see Sunlight soap), but years earlier, Jean Menier understood the importance of the packaging and sold his chocolates in a yellow chrome wrapping.
By 1867 Menier was truely big with plantations, sugar refinery, ships, everything.
Menier was taken in by Nestlé in 1988.
There are at least two layers, but it's not clear if both are about Menier. The text at the top says Gardez votre confiance (or Keep your trust). There is more text below the Menier but I can't decipher it.

The other side of the same house shows a nice ad for Valentine paint.
The Cémoi is painted on top of an advertisement for a famous hotel in Cannes (see in our Tourism section).
Chocolat MoreuilMoreuil was founded in Clichy (Paris) in 1825.
Note: before I'm flooded by mail telling me this plate shouldn't be on this page. Know that I have the right to wave the first requirement (Admission requirements). I gladly make an exception.
