Begin the day with charitable thoughts at 45 Rue Jeanne d’Arc. It’s not much to look at, but this building is one of the earliest examples of social housing in Paris. Constructed by the Société Philanthropique, a society founded in 1780 by wealthy men ‘inspired by benevolence’, the building has housed people in difficulty since the mid-1800s – and it still does so today. The society now owns more than fifteen other buildings all over Paris, home to around 680 families.
