Villemomble



These two postcards are here simply because I love the name of the town where they come from; Villemomble. The cards were sent on 1903. Today the town is in the suburbs of Paris.

I love French cityscapes with the heavily sculpted trees in these old PCs and the impressionist paintings.

Makes me want to jump in the car and head south.

The postmark on the left hand side is interesting too.
Lovely clean wide streets. Such a pleasure to walk on.

I love old european town names. They have real meaning and feeling to them.

Caroline; wait for better weather. So much was lost because of the wars.

A Lady's Life: Yes, some people are interested in the postmarks, just as much as the postcards. Not all towns were laid out like that - we have very narrow streets in the old part of our village.

Jane Blogs: Thanks for your comment. I love the names of the towns in Brittany.
