The weather was perfect, and a good time was had by all. Here are some photos:
Machine guns and bagpipes. The CRS cop on the right is cradling a machine gun against his chest. CRS cops are best known for crowd and riot control (Compagnies Républicaines de Sécurité).
These are called poêle en faïence which means a ceramic stove. These two come from Alsace and the Vosges. One is early 20th century, the other is late 19th century. Coal or wood fed, I think they’re magnificent.
Someone’s medal of valor ends up in a flea market. Sad. I wonder who the person was, and what act of bravery he committed.
The dog was not for sale.
more photos to come later … thanks for stopping by!
