slow down...


It's the weekend !  This very old speed limit sign is on an old industrial site in Amboise.  The years have really made it fade... and note the moss on top of the wooden post.

    1. I'm guessing when this sign was put up, it seemed a lot faster !

    1. Maybe it was a pedestrian street back then.

  5. It is planted awfully low to the ground. For les petite voitures, ou bicyclettes, peut-être?

    1. It is low. I suspect because it's not on a main road but on an industrial site. So it's probably not even an "official" road sign provided by the state.

    1. Well, it was an industrial site, so there were lots of pedestrians (workers) I presume.
