THE STAIRWELLS and elevators of Paris apartment buildings are notoriously cramped, so the city’s movers have developed their own conveyor system to get furniture out through a window. This one, just off the busy Rue Froidevaux in the Montparnasse district, is just across the street from Montparnasse Cemetery, final resting place for many artists and publishers, as well as policemen and firefighters killed in the line of duty and not a few foreigners.
Montparnasse is one of the most interesting cemeteries in Paris (which has many).
