Map[edit]

The dot on the map is in the wrong place, on my screen at least. I'm not sure how the map works as it appears the dot is superimposed on the background map, though. 143.252.80.100 11:17, 31 October 2007 (UTC)

Same here. 76.251.238.254 (talk) 02:25, 19 February 2008 (UTC)

Sentence Order[edit]

This paragraph in the introduction seems rather awkward:

Le Havre was once synonymous with urban coldness and grayness. The city is spoken of now as the Brasilia of France. Le Havre's home port code is LH. The city's inhabitants have done much to change this, and it has been marked by improvement since then.

I doubt any Harvais every really cared about their "home port code." They would probably be more interested in being pereiced as less cold and gray. Also, I think we need to clarify the Brasilia reference.

Deleted paragraph[edit]

I've removed this paragraph from the intro for now:

The city was also dubbed the Porte Océane, or Gateway to the Ocean. Architecturally, this image has been revived in the reconstrusted city through the "gateway" that forms the frame at either end of Fochs Avenue, which meets the seafront.


Why was the port of Le Havre not considered as a probable

It needs references, and a photograph showing what this "gateway" looks like could really help. NotAnonymous (talk) 21:06, 26 October 2009 (UTC)

heraldry from French page[edit]

  • I'm confused: the blazon says 3 fleur-de-lis (fr-wiki: trois fleurs de lys d'or), the image has two. Or does it mean that the place of the thirs one is taken by the corner lion? East of Borschov 14:57, 3 September 2010 (UTC)

What about some history?[edit]

I came here to read up on the earliest settlements, name origin, etc. Nothing.

Why was the port of Le Havre not considered as a probable site for the landings of the Allied Forces in 1944?§
