Remarks & Notes 
Miracles do happen with the Internet. Further to my picture #515563 that I took 31 years ago (and also picture #518214), Mr. Bertrand Le Duigou who was the station master on duty at the time contacted me and kindly provided me with a picture of his station in the early 1930’s. Bertrand purchased the glass plate from a local photographer some years ago. Here is this gem of the past.

Of notice on the picture:
- The railroaders wear the P.O. uniform. P.O. was the Paris-Orléans railroad company, that owned and ran this south Brittany line before it was transferred to the "ETAT" (Réseau de l'Etat), the then French Government’s railroad administration in the west of France.
- The full Lartigue “électrosémaphore” Lartigue (electric semaphore signal) whose basis can be seen on the left of my two pictures. When the semaphore was removed, the basis was kept so as to give information about approaching trains both directions.

Photography by M. Crolard from Lorient, from the personal collection of Bertrand Le Duigou.

The time is gone, the song is over, snapshots and memories remains... Some things we remember, some we see now - and will not forget...
