Festal Preparations, Manosque

Date of Publication May, 1959.

Published by The Medici society in 1959
Sometimes referred to as 'Festival Preparations', this shows a group
of girls (in the basement of La Marie?) preparing street decorations
for 14th July celebrations. Manosque is a typical old Provencal
market town lying on the river Durance some eighty-five miles east
of Avignon, and a similar distance north-east of Marseilles.

Although now a thriving modern centre of a rich agricultural area,
its old quarter, reached through the fourteenth century gateways,
remains an attraction for locals and tourists alike.
