If a picture could speak


This one would be able to tell us some stories I am sure. “Le banc des Vieux Loups de Mer” - The Bench of the Old Sea Dogs . Old Breton fishermen meeting up in the sunshine.

Oh no kiddin. I bet they would have tons of stories to tell the old sea dogs.

That's quite a collection of characters. You can almost hear them retelling their tales.

SMiles,

Hi Anji,
The postcards featured here are so interesting. Many years ago my twin and I used to collect postcards as we have had pen-pals from many countries. I am now a Follower of this Blog. Take care and enjoy the rest of your weekend.

Love those hates and the beard on the bloke third from the right. I can almost smell the pipe smoke and fish on them....

Anji said...

A lady's life: unfortunately we'll have to imagine them...

Cedar Junction: Yes, if you get right up close to the screen and listen carefully!

Judy: I hope that you'll write about them on your blog.

Don: Life wouldn't have been easy for them at all.

Bing: I understand. All of them are long gone...

Kath: Yes, they would have smelt 'interesting' to say the least. My dad had a big beard too.



I'd like to bet that they had plenty of advice to give the youngsters
