I use WIKI 2 every day and almost forgot how the original Wikipedia looks like.
What we do. Every page goes through several hundred of perfecting techniques; in live mode. Quite the same Wikipedia. Just better.

Concorde is a station on lines 1, 8 and 12 of the Paris Métro in the Place de la Concorde in central Paris and the 1st arrondissement.

The station was opened on 13 August 1900, almost a month after trains began running on the original section of line 1 between Porte de Vincennes and Porte Maillot on 19 July 1900. The line 12 platforms were opened on 5 November 1910 as part of the first section of the Nord-Sud Company's line C from Porte de Versailles to Notre-Dame-de-Lorette. This line was taken over by the Compagnie du chemin de fer métropolitain de Paris and was renamed line 12 on 27 March 1931. The line 8 platforms were opened on 12 March 1914 on the first section of the line from Beaugrenelle (now Charles Michels on line 10) to Opéra; this line had been opened on 13 July 1913, although the platforms at Concorde and Invalides were not yet finished.

Concorde is distinctive due to its décor created by artist Françoise Schein: she covered the entire station's voult line 12 with tiles spelling the Déclaration des Droits de l'Homme et du Citoyen of 1789.

Ezra Pound's famous Imagist poem, "In a Station of the Metro", was inspired by this station.
