A Second Plaque for Beauford - Update

Good news!

Les Amis has received approval from the City of Paris for the installation of a second plaque honoring Beauford in the 14th arrondissement. It will be mounted on the façade of Hôtel Le M at 20 bis, rue de la Gaîte.

Beauford frequently took meals with friends at a restaurant called Les Mille Colonnes that was once located at this address.

In April 2014, the City of Paris approved the mounting of a plaque at the Odessa Hotel, which is only a couple of blocks away.

Beauford stayed at the Odessa when he first arrived in Paris in 1953.

Stay tuned for updates on the fabrication of the plaques and the installation ceremony!
