Georges-Eugène Haussmann, better known as Baron Haussmann was hired by Napoleon III on 22 June 1852 to "modernize" Paris. He created broad avenues linked to the main train-stations so army troops from the provinces could be operative in a short amount of time (for example, the boulevard de Strasbourg near Gare de l''Est and Gare du Nord).
