Presidential Visit in Lyon, May 1914



It seems that back then postcards were also used to spread some news, like here. This one depicts President Raymond Poincaré in Lyon in May 1914, a few weeks before WW1.

And with this postcard, I’m getting ready to hop on a “horse carriage” (well, actually a plane) and wave you goodbye for a few weeks, as I will most likely be more or less without the Internet for a while.

However, as I will certainly get a smart-phone soon (a first for me) do not hesitate to follow me on Facebook, Twitter or Google+ if you don’t already do so.

I’ll be back sooner than you think and with a lot of full length blog posts.
