Garage, Saintes

Eleven minutes in Saintes, part 7 (Go to part 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 8, 9)

With nothing else around to take a picture of on the eastern side of the railway tracks (see parts 1 to 6), I went down the Gambetta underpass, only to discover some new signs as soon as I emerged above ground.

Unfortunately, this series of painted signs is not easy to decipher, partly because it is hidden by the modern signs of a well-known car rental company, but also because there are several layers including one with many elaborate floral motives.


To the left of the window:
...struction [Construction ?]
...obiles [Automobiles]
To the right of the window:
Pièces détachées
Another sign here ended with: Teintures [Dyes].


Location: corner Avenue Gambetta / Avenue de la Marne, Saintes, Charente-Maritime / Pictures taken on: 06/06/2010
