My house

... In the 1920s.


The caption underneath the post card (in case you can't read it) says "Cooperative Dairy of Marçon — General View" Its speciality, eighty or ninety years ago was apparently a fine Camembert cheese. Our neighbour remembers when he was a small boy the tanker trucks going around to all the farms collecting the milk. Those times seem far away now. We are the only ones left within the immediate area still producing milk for cream, butter, and cheese — and we only do it for the pleasure of eating our own produce.
