Saturday's postcard #4: France's Mont Saint-Michel in the snow

  • Title: Le Mont Saint-Michel (Manche)
  • Caption on back of card: Le Mont sous la Neige ("Mount in the Snow")
  • Publisher: Les Editions d'Art Yvon, Paris, 15, rue Martel. (Note the word Yvon on the lower-right corner of the front of the postcard.)
  • Year: None listed.
  • Used: Not really. Someone scrawled "14 July 1961" on the back, in light pencil.
  • Comments: I didn't consciously plan it this way, but here we are back at Normandy to conclude this Very Mini Blogathon on D-Day. This card shows historic and beautiful Le Mont-Saint-Michel covered in a bit of snow. ... According to, Edition d’Art Yvon, led by founder/photographer Pierre Yves Petit, began business as a postcard publisher in 1919. The Yvon images are still reprinted and sold on postcards today. ... Mont Saint-Michel has been featured in two previous Papergreat posts: In April 2013 and June 2013.
