Jean-Louis' photos of Richelieu in the snow.


* La CITÉ IDÉALE fully whitened in early January 2009 *

The author of the french-language blog for the people of the Richelieu canton, Jean-Louis Laurence, has put up a splendid set of pictures of Richelieu in the recent snows. 
to a direct link to his public Google PICASA album of photos. Try clicking on the 'diaporama'- slideshow - button.

All credit to Jean-Louis Laurence, the Eugène Atget of Richelieu - do we have any competitors?
Here's another Atget site this time recreating the views he took.
