Founded in 1872, Julien Aurouze & Co. specialises in pest control. Located on Rue de Halles in the 1eme arrondissement of Paris, the shop front features dead rats hanging from hooks, taxidermied rats, and generally all-things-rat-and-dead, making it absolutely clear that their prime speciality lies in killing rats.
This unusual shop, and it’s even more unusual display and advertising skills, is still in business today. A little bit of trivia: Aurouze’ shop window made a brief appearance in the movie, Ratatouille as a warning to Remy by his dad to stay away from humans.
