139. Old architecture in Fourmies.

Since I make city and town pictures, I have eyes that go from the ground to the top of the buildings to get something special. And I have now eyes which see what nobody walking on the streets see : that our little towns have architecture treasures. Like the fontipiece of this bank in Fourmies... It is atonishing what the old houses (almost all of the beginning of the industrial era) have to offer to the eyes of the pedestrians : antique styles like here, houses with false columms, orient style, you can find in the main street St Louis and around all what your eyes can imagine as architecture... Walk and look at the houses all around you. What for big work made our ancestors !
