The Yale Center for British Art recently released over 22,000 high-resolution images through the center’s online collection.  Amongst these images appears a view of the city of Paris from 1749.  The city appears in the background with the green of Chaillot in the foreground.  In the map below, Chaillot is located in the middle, left-hand section where it is colored in blue.  The closest road in the foreground is the Grande Rue des Chaillot.  It is in this area that the famous vines of Chaillot were tended.
