4 more postcards of old Richelieu

Claire et Nick have sent versions of four more postcards to add to our archive of views 'from the olden days'.
The first of the gatehouse of the porte de Loudun....


Then a card of the church and main square the place du Marché in its old layout...


Then the Grande Rue looking north from the place du Marché...


and finally the then shopping street of rue de la Galère.


Merci Claire.
