afternoon - City of Brest: Exposition at City Hall & Marine Museum at Castle
After a very event full morning trying to trace the 1919
YMCA auto trip up the Élorn River (Report #10), Peg, Patrick & Keith drove back
to the city. Monique and Alain had informed us of a war years
commemoration exhibition at Brest's City Hall. Keith seeing the photo used
on the event announcement and brochures being of the US Naval seaplanes that
brought his father to Brest in WWI, this was a "must see". From this fine
exhibit, we would walk down Brest's main Siam Street to visit the National
Marine Museum which was housed in the prominent Castle fortress at the entrance
of the Penfeld River. We definitely would run out of steam by the latter
part of this day.
