This first HD photo shows the two allegorical statues positioned on either side of the clock on the pediment of the main facade of the Gare Denfert-Rochereau, which was initially started in 1842, yet the train station was not opened until 1846.
Now this next photo shows the allegorical statue relief located to the left hand side of the clock, which was designed utilising a female figure to depict one of the innovations in rail transport, and as you can see this is recessed into the rectangular top part of the facade.
However, here you can see the right hand side female allegorical figure, which is depicting advancements in technology of the railway systems globally and the engineering aspects that go into creating a rail network, like the innovation of a u turn originally used in the unusual circular Gare Denfert-Rochereau.
Yet here you can see the entire main facade of the Gare Denfert-Rochereau, and classified as an historical monument, this is the oldest train station in Paris still operating, and here you can see the top pediment with the clock, which some sources state was produced by the Bodet company, and you can discover this tourist attraction in Paris in the 14th Arrondissement at the Place Denfert-Rochereau.
