Relents d'enfance

This butcher-poultry shop reminds me of my childhood with its typical sixties or seventies front.

Ce boucher me rappelle mon enfance avec cette devanture assez typée...

And of course I am interested for the yellow and red color of this storefront from the 60s...

Fabulous, Ciel. I just changed my desktop settings to point toward some photos I took near Arles and Avignon a few years ago, and two of the photos are of a yellow and a red storefront similar to this one. Love it.

Neat colors, definitely retro. I like store that keep to their original decor, it's fun to reminisce.

Randy said...

Can't miss those colors. Happy Friday!

60's and 70's architecture is rather forgettable, in my view, except the colors save this facade.

You showed a butcher shop today, and Steffe from Hanige, Sweden showed a butcher.

In this fast paced, ever evolving world, it is comforting to know some things haven't changed too much. Hope you have a splendid weekend :^)

I love the seventies with their bold use of color! Does Boucherie mean butcher? :D

Lorsque j'étais enfant je ne mangeais pas de viande ! Alors mes relents ce sont plutôt des patisseries ou des stands de bonbons de foire (ah la mascotte ou les petits réglisses roulés) mais il est vrai que cette vitrine est sympa...
Il est comment le boucher ?

Tanya said...

Typically these are in older neighborhoods where one can find fabulous food. I would love to visit this store.

Having moved from Texas to the northeast - I don't see things anymore that remind me of growing up, everything looks so different here. I miss that.

I told my husband I wanted to learn to speak French. When I tried to pronounce something in french with my Texas accent he said I could single-handledly destroy french culture!! :-)

Francisca said...

Yes, very retro store front...

Gunn said...

It has some sort of a retro style...
And I remember a few butcher shops here in Stavanger.
Not that many left these days.
