Petanque in days gone by

To celebrate the end of another successful pétanque year, here's a slideshow of over 50 boules and pétanque scenes from a wide variety of towns in France over the past century.

Very interesting to see the change in dress and, in the later ones, some of France's most classic cars.

The song is by Henry Roman, aka Ricoune, one of Provence's most popular apéro concert singers. Enjoy!

Happy New Year to all our friends!
