National Geographic : 1936 Aug
© National Geographic Society Finlay Photograph by Bernard F.Rogers, Jr. CLIMAX OF THE AUGUST FETE IS THE SINGING OF CAROLS AND OLD-TIME BALLADS AROUND THE VILLAGE SHRINE While the festival usually is held at dusk, last year the Choral Society courteously met on another day sothat these natural-color photographs could be made in brilliant sunlight. Every housewife takes pride in the flower boxes which brighten her home. Acovered water trough behind the spectators (left) provides the tubs for the town's "hand laundry" and the road passing it leads to the Chateau whence the procession started.
