Gustave Caillebotte, Le Pont de l'Europe, dated 1877.

Manet lived on the Right Bank of the Seine, in the district just north of the Gare Saint-Lazare, called the Batignolles. Here different social classes crossed paths, such as the gentleman in his top hat and frock coat and the worker in his smock.
