ABBEY JAMIEGES FRANCE from Rue Guillaume le Conquerant and Mainberte POSTCARTE POSTCARD
A deckle edged French postcard showing an engraving from a drawing by Arthur Jules Mayeur b.1871 Bouvigny-Boyeffles - d.1934 Paris. It shows a view from of old houses with the abbey in the background.
The view is from the junction of Rue Guillaume le Conquérant and Rue Mainberte; I think the buildings in the foreground are still there today and believe them to be the Brasserif named Cafe de L'eglise. The view must have been drawn from (approx.) in the little car park opposite the war memorial.
A postcard from the date stated; not a scan and not a later re-print. The card measures overall 140 x 90mm (5.5 x 3.5inches ) approx. It is not written or stamped on the reverse apart from light pencil references. There is a little age yellowing. There is a tape witness mark to reverse (see scan).
