WHERE BRETONS WREST A LIVING FROM THE SEA 761 A DEPARTMENT STORE ON WHEELS VISITS GUERANDE ONCE A WEEK A toot of the horn brings women in coifs hurrying into the street. Here a housewife may buy a gay sweater for her husband, novelties for the children, and perhaps a bit of silk for herself. Photographs by F. W. Goro ALL THE COUNTRYSIDE GOES TO TOWN ON SATURDAY, MARKET DAY Peat cutters from the plain of La Grande Briere, salt workers from the marshes (page 763), and fisherfolk from the near-by coast flock to Guerande to buy their week's supplies from farm women's baskets. Old time coifs rapidly give place to more modern millinery here as in many of the larger Breton communities.
