The Rue Ernst

According to Ernst’s descendant Henriette Schattuck, the rue Ernst in Nice, next to the Opera, was so renamed in 1885, but it was renamed again as the Rue Milton-Robbins (after an American lady philanthropist) in 1918 – the ‘Rue Ernst’ being thought to sound too German. (This corrects the information in HWE:3 and 271)
