Old northern village entrance and first house

    The first house on the left at the old northern entrance to the village (on the Rue Emile Desourteaux) belonging to the Dagoury family (Cement manufacturers), note the rusting 'Silence' notice which is also shown at the old southern entrance and the one from the Centre de la Mémoire. Since the new Centre de la Mémoire opened, both the original entrances have been closed and the only access now is through the Centre. The old entrance with the "Souviens Toi" notice is just to the left of view. The Maison Dupic (last house to be burned) is just to the right of view.
