Ongoing Telecom History since 1671
Our telecom activites started in 1671. Two entrepreneurs, Louis Pajot & Leon Rouille invented in our house
company called "La Poste". It became the Royal French postal services for King Louis XIV.
The sun king had already spend part of his chidhood in our old mansion previously owned
by his tutor Nicolas V de Villeroy. The bulding was also called VB.
Villeroys, in the house since 1370, were advisors of the Bourbons (Kings of France).
Horses were carrying letters from our gate 9/11 rue des Dechargeurs 75001 Paris
to thousands of Pajot & Rouille or Thurn & Taxis post relais located all over Europe.
Our old postal gate always appears in the pictures.
Spirit of Telecommunication stayed in our walls and in the memory of the Thurn & Taxis Telecom family.
Thanks to one of them we were able in 1986 to reactivate the old Telecom genes of our walls
opening a small Phone Boutique around the corner.
Well when you just turned 20 and you open a Sony Phone Boutique around a Paris Hotspot
many adventures are waiting for you ...
1993 we added a long distance Telecom office using US callback lines
and started the very first Internet Cafe in France.
The cafe attracted American pioneers
desperately looking for web acces while travelling through Paris.
Without realizing it
we run into the most fascinating pioneers.
Most were young, very young and nobody knew who they were or who they were going to become,
They might not have known it themselves.
Others were a little older
one was the assistant of Dr Jon Postel who had invented the dot com system,
one was on
the first flight to the Moon
Another one who came for web lessons had once met the inventor of the phone Alexander Graham Bell,
a jewel left to her by the fashion designer Coco Chanel played a key role in our history.
Chanel loved our place, the two Ladies used to walk there at night long before the times of the internet.
Chanel had discovered our Cremerie de Paris in 1920
through her Russian boyfriend Dmitri Romanov who had helped her to create the perfume No5.
Dmitri was also a great uncle for us but the barriers of time did not allow to meet.
This is how the Phone Book of the World was invented.
Today the magic of the past attracts many famous brands that set up Pop Up stores.
Again we have the chance to run into many pioneers,
they don't come to get internet access,
but to show their inventions:
phones, computer games, cars, washing machines, food, sports, haute couture, jewellry or fashion.
Lots of fashion ...
Discover their iconic expos while looking for phone numbers.
Our building is exactly the same,
even the water fountain for the postal horses is still in place ...
Times have changed
but spirit of Telecomunications is full alive.
