Following yesterday's article (https://goo.gl/UkmB6s), here's a photo of Bergerac Public Garden ("Jardin Public") with its bandstand.
Today, this space has been converted into 2 parking lots: Republique (open air) and Carmes (underground) car parks.

Following last week article about the new and improved Carmes St (https://goo.gl/9CXVkG), I could not help sharing with you a photo of this part of Bergerac dated back to 1946.
73 years ago, the town had 2 cinemas (The Cyrano and the Odeon) and a park next to it ("Jardin Public")

The Cinema Cyrano, is still there today in the same spot (building on your left), the other one, the Odeon, (on your right) closed down in the 60'.

As for the public garden ("Jardin Public"), it has been converted into 2 parking lots: Republique (open air) and Carmes (underground) car parks.

Truth About The 2 Pictures: Mourier St, no 2
#BookDirectDordogne#

On Friday (https://goo.gl/LM3vDr), I posted 2 pictures and asked if you could guess why they were so similar. So did you guess???

The answer is:
They are both similar because it's the same street and exact same location in Old Town Bergerac: Mourier St, no 2…. only 64 years separate them!
In december 1957, this location was taking by the fishmonger Castang. In this black and white picture, he s showcasing oysters and geese for the ideal Christmas feast. And in the other, taken in 2018, the fishmonger has been replaced by the Desigual store.
