Marcel Borde, Bourg-sur-Gironde

A lovely late 19th-early 20th century sign for ironmonger Marcel Borde.
This is one of several painted signs that can still be seen while strolling through the streets of Bourg-sur-Gironde, a lovely little town on the bank of the River Dordogne, 40 km north of Bordeaux.
