Curiously, it looks both older and more gentrified in the modern view. It is situated on the intersection at the lieu dit mysteriously known as Café Brûlé (='burnt coffee'). The photo shows the only check point along the World War II Demarcation Line in the commune of Reignac sur Indre, so the only place you could cross from one zone to the other in the area in the days when France was divided between Occupied and 'Free' (Vichy).
You still have to take care as you cross at this point, as the speed limit drops to 70 kmph and there is a speed camera (....ahem....as some of us know to our cost).
