Exhibition of old postcard and more!

Post  Admin on Sun 29 Jul - 17:18

As every summer, Michel Penven is exhibiting his old postacrds at the Moulin du Chaos watermill. They are in a large format and there are some are new ones this year.

Hundreds of enlargements show Huelgoat and its "canton" or district at the end of the 19th century and up to the20th century. You can see streets, businesses, hotels, markets and traditional costumes of the period.

The golden age of the region of Huelgoat is there, shown in in black and white photos which are full of nostalgia and sometimes melancholy. The railway, the fairs, the markets, the granite quarries, the clog makers without forgetting the gigantic weddings of yesteryear, where the meals took place outdoors, in trenches!

This year, Michel Penven proposes a series of photos, "From one bridge to another", which portray the ten years from the construction of the new bridge of the Chaos following the floods of December 2000.

Entry is free during the hours and opening days: The exhibition is on until August 30th, in the afternoons in July from Monday to Saturday and every day in August.
