Petitot’s allegory of industry was one of four sculptures that had been placed on the Pont du Carrousel, a bridge spanning the Seine, only five years before Marville made this view. The formality of the monument is somewhat mitigated by the makeshift stall displaying goods for sale—itself a tiny monument to industriousness—nestled in the niche below.
