Public place #1

This place in Nice is called "Jardin Jacques Imbert".
Before posting this drawing, I tried to find out who Jacques Imbert was, and most of the articles on the web talk about a famous gangster from Marseille, who had been arrested only in 2004 at age 74. It would be more than strange if the city of Nice honored a person like that by naming a place after him... more probably, they meant the poet and later "Inspecteur général de l'enseignement artistique" (General inspector of artistic teachings) of the same name. But who knows?
