La Couture Boussey,France

These 3 cards come from a small village in the middle of the Beauce (the French Breadbasket). The area was well known for its many wind instrument factories during the 18th century, but unfortunately many of them are now shut down.

We have a house in the village, and a few weeks ago my mum went there, and bought me these postcards from the Museum there (it was set up to preserve the history of wind instrument fabrication of the village). Also as I play the clarinet, these cards are quite special to me.
