Yay, finally! I found a good reason to post some photographs I took a couple of months ago. The theme over at the Our Beautiful World blog today is TRANSPORT, and I thought these photographs of vintage French cars would suit the theme well. I came across them at what had been advertised as a brocante, but turned out to be mostly 'collections', all to do with cars. Stall after stall with miniature cars and car related bits etc. They also had a little exhibition of vintage cars. I am not a car enthusiast, but I do love these old girls -

And this record setting beauty -

I hope you are all enjoying a beautiful Easter Sunday wherever you are.

We are not generally interested in motor cars but do greatly admire some of those built in the inter war years and immediately after for they do, in our view, have a certain style which is quite appealing.

Last year in Montevideo we did visit the small Motor Museum which we enjoyed greatly, possibly far more than we might have thought beforehand.

Here we love the very splendid black Maigret motor car which you picture.
