Saint-Martin Metro Station, Paris

 

Another of the empty stations in Paris and one of the biggest I’ve visited. If you’re not paying attention you’ll find that it’s sometime difficult to work out whether approaching trains are heading down towards the platform that you’re on, the parallel track running across from you or the line running upstairs/downstairs.

 

This place first emptied out at the start of the second world war, spent a couple of years in use after reopening and then closed its doors for good. It has been used to hide the homeless, sell Nissan Qashqais and to advertise for sportswear giant Nike.

 

It has been over two years since I have kicked about on dusty platforms in Paris, if you’re interested check out Croix-Rouge & Arsenal, a couple of photographs from a jaunt in 2013.

 

Hold tight for more Parisian metro!
