|Snow plough arrival|
I visited my neighbour who moved here in 1960. She married a local man whose mother took in orphans from Paris. (Assistance Publique) Every house in the village took abandoned children for extra money.Women became Wet nurses the children went to school and at 14 they were packed off to jobs as Butchers, bakers or land workers. I had known about this as occasionally we have a visit from someone who spent their early years in the farm here. I live in a tiny hamlet, it's surprising how many people are related to original in habitants, houses are saved for future generations. Selling property is not part of the culture. There was once 4 café's no cars just donkeys and carts. Donkeys were being used in the 60's.
