Beauties of the Grand Café, Ganges.

One sight.
Other sight.

The beautiful old cars parade in the streets of Ganges and in front of the Granf Café, at the time of the third festive manifestion “Ganges 1900”.

As at the "Belle Époque", during two days people find a little pride and taste to get dressed elegantly.

In 2009 took place, in Ganges, the third manifestion festive “Ganges 1900”.

For the occasion, one reconstitutes show windows of time of the stores, a post office, a classroom where the certificate of studies is passed by again, one attends a marriage in Town hall, one ressuscite defunct occupations, harnessed or mechanics transports, one extinguishes a fire with a hand pump, one sit down at the terraces of the cafés, being served by well-trained boys, one makes turns of horse-gear, one attends exhibitions, demonstrations and spectacles, like meetings of tambourin, a local sport of exchange of ball, one plays bowls, one takes part in a large banquet, one drinks, one laughs, one dances with the sound of the accordion and the barrel organ. To create environment nearly 400 volunteers rents clothing of time with which they get dressed with an unutterable pleasure.

The Belle Époque Time is designation, given after the First World War, at the quasi mythical period 1890-1914 which created the image of the French who like to live.

Bonjour joel,

Excellent cadrage de cette vielle voiture, les details et la netteté sont bien aperçus sous cette angle.
Les couleurs sont magnifique et belle clarté.
Une belle ambiance d'été.
Merci pour le partage.

bonjour Joël,

Un angle de vue osé, crétaif et très efficace pour présenter cette belle scène où des élements du passé se mélent harmonieusement à d'autres plus contemporains. Et puis pour nous Belges des détails qui sentnet bon la France et les vacances comme par exemple les enseignes PMU.
Amitiés,
Roger

Bonsoir Joel,

a Ganges tu as realise pas mal de tres belles photos. Et differentes par rapport a ton approche habituel. Ici le sujet est bien interessant et le cadrage se determine aux elements qui font une riche et complete composition. Grand Cafe te restera reconnaissant de cette belle vue. Moi aussi. Amicalement

the old Peugeot steal the show from the city of Ganges during its parade, as the others too,in front of the Grand Café.Really the view of these cars is a great experience for someone to see all these old beauties.

Have a good day,Danos

Hi Joël.

This car is so beautiful. Very clean and fully restored machine captured in close framing. Excellent details and fine perspective in this shot. Thanks for sharing and best regards.

salut joel
une beauté qui date, mais pleine de charme, on voit qu'elle a été astiquée, ces deux petites étoiles sur les ailes et sur les phares en dit long sur le lustrage de la peinture et des chromes, belle netteté

Bonjour Joël
Ah la belle époque ;) Les belles vieilles voitures sont fascinantes et c'est sympa de nous faire profiter des autres images complémentaires par cette belle journée ensoleillée.
Amitiés
Marilyn

Hello Joël,

A fine old Peugeot is dominating the frame, well deserved if you ask me!
The car is well maintained and it is good to see it is still licenced and running...
I like the composition, conveying the impression of a busy street scene..!

Greetings,
Pablo -

Bonjour Joël.
Cette 201 est superbe. J'aime cette carrosserie qui brille comme on sou neuf. Mon grand-père et mon père ont eu une 201, que de souvenirs ! C'est bon pour les jeunes générations de voir comme on pouvait vivre sans télévisions ni ordinateurs.
Amitiés
Jacques

Hello Joel,
