Loire à Vélo Shops Villages

The All Rounder – L'homme de la situation

I took this photo in the little town of Châtillon-sur-Loire during our recent cycling trip along the Loire east of Orleans. The shop’s closed but it was once run by a roofer/plumber. Ferblanterie comes from fer blanc or “white iron” which means “tin”. A ferblanterie can also be an ironmonger’s store. Zinguerie comes from “zinc” which was often used on roofs.
J’ai pris cette photo dans la petite ville de Châtillon-sur-Loire qu’on a visitée pendant notre circuit sur l’Eurovélo 6 à l’est d’Orléans.
