P. Devèze, Blaye

To conclude this series of French ghost signs spotted one day as we followed the northern bank of the River Dordogne and the Gironde estuary between Saint-André-de-Cubzac and Blaye, here is an example of a sign painted not on a wall but on wood.

With its wooden front and long windows behind which products would have been displayed, this is a typical 19th century French shop. Unfortunately I have not found what was once on offer at Devèze's.
