Peugot 163 fourgonnette de 1922

En démolissant des bâtiments anciens à Lyon en juillet dernier (2014 ! ) les ouvriers ont eu la surprise de découvrir cette ancienne fourgonnette Peugeot emmurée dans un local !
A l'intérieur il y avait des bons d'essence valables jusqu'en 1947 et un exemplaire du journal "Le Progrès de Lyon " du 12 décembre 1945 ; elle a dû être emmurée à cette date .

Great capture which had a sense of abstractness to it as it wasn't clearly obvious what we were looking at.

La poire du Klaxon à le mérite d'exister encore... c'est qui frappe le plus le regard, dès qu'on aperçois cette image.
