Iron Market - Marche en Fer - Marche Hyppolite
This is our historic Haitian Iron Market back in the days. The Marche en Fer in Port-au-Prince
Marche en Fer had its share of difficulties in the beginning of the 21st century. The iron market was decimated by a fire in 2008, and the 2010 earthquake gave it the final knock-out punch that actually brought the marche to its knee before the Digicel CEO paid for its renovation
Here is a beautiful picture of the Marche en Fer or Iron Market as it was renovated after the 2010 earthquake.
The historic marche Hyppolite was built in the 19th century in France. The original plan was not to build a Marche. The French engineers made this structure to be use in Cairo, Egypt as a railway station.
This is a picture of Denis O'Brien, CEO of Digicel and the Irish billionaire who donated 12 million for the project of renovating the Iron Market or Marche en Fer.
