Moulin is the French word for "mill". The Moulin Rouge is tourist night-club with a history dating back to its founding in 1889 by Joseph Oller and Charles Zidler. It is probably most famous for the Zidler can-can girls. The original building was quite a contrast to the rest of Paris and the Red Windmill is still there today. The French painter Henri Toulouse-Lautrec (1864-1901) captured the Moulin Rouge in paintings.
