The building is located Montmartre street, which exists since the king Louis VI, in 1137, created the market of the Halles. It was joining an ancient path coming down Montmartre hill and became one of the main axis of the area.
The area of the Sentier was known during the 19th century as the center of textile industry. The writer Honoré de Balzac mentions it several times in his book 'Le Bal de Sceaux', when Émilie de Fontaine discovers Maximilien de Longueville selling cloth. It was also the area of print media, as Balzac tells it in his book 'La Rabouilleuse' where Philippe Bridau puts down his prose before going to eat to the Rocher de Cancale. The newspaper 'Le Tribun du Peuple', founded in may 1871 by the Communard Prosper-Olivier Lissagaray, had its head office in this building.
