The Crédit Municipal bank on rue des Blancs-Manteaux.

The Crédit Municipal at 16, rue des Blancs-Manteaux, familiarly known as «Ma Tante» (my Aunt), traces its origins to 1777 when it was opened under the orders of patent letters issued by King Louis the 16th. The bank is famous for its «mont-de-piété» operations, where it lends money to people on the value of items deposited.
