About This Image

With photographer's red stamp on verso and negative number in pencil. The Foire du Trone is one of the largest country fairs in France that attracts a staggering five million visitors each year. Its origins date back to 957 when merchants met with farmers and producers to trade grain and rice. Over its 1,000-year history, it has shifted venues, changed names and survived the French Revolution to become one of the biggest fairs in the French calendar. Provenance: Photographer to Models, Marc and Christiane Chevalier. Comes with a letter of provenance from Marc Chevalier. © Gamma Rapho, Robert Doisneau.
