Miroiterie Langevin, La Rochelle

Documents reveal that the Langevin mirror workshop was already trading in 1898. This is the only information I found about this particular business, which targeted especially car owners.

The different letterings, the pastel-like background and the old-style street light really take us to another era.

Over the past couple of years I posted a few ghost signs from La Rochelle. The city is actually full of them and over the next days I will introduce some seen along one particular street.
