A Double Mystery

We mentioned many years ago (January 2007) that we had bought a book of old photos of Preuilly sur Claise.

One of the photos has had me intruiged ever since we bought the book, but the other day it finally clicked: I knew where the old carriage works (carrossier) was.

It's this building on Rue du Faubourg St Nicolas:

The strange thing is that this building has already been part of another mystery: it's also the old Eglise St Nicolas I spent quite a long time trying to find a couple of years ago.



  1. It's hardly changed at all !

  2. Jean - I think it is because once I had realised the building had a previous life as a church, I didn't look at it with my "looking for old factory" eyes

  3. It's the Maigret in me, naturellement

  4. I would never have recognised it!!! Diane
