Medieval market

Saint Pierre Sur Dives – August 2020

This structure is the inside view of the 11th century market hall in the town which unfortunately was completely destroyed by fire during the battle for the town in 1944. Although the wonderful building was lovely reproduced after the war the timbers are clearly cut with modern tools unlike the original medieval beams. The building is still used to this day for food, livestock and antiques markets every Monday and first Sunday of the month. Well worth a visit if your in the Normandy area.

Taken on my Leica M4-2, Summicron 35mm f/2 ASPH and taken on Ilford HP5, rated at 800.
