I will try to revive this interesting thread

Before after pictures of a small French town , for my part I have a real nostalgia for the 60s or the years before the war to the French landscape and urbanism.

beach of Tresmeur and Tozoul - Trebeurden, France
The beach of left today is a port.







Sorry for my bad english
