French Fest 3

Another part of the Bonjour Perth Festival that we enjoyed last weekend was the French car show.

Cars on display included a Citroen Traction Avant (above) and this pair of 2CVs.

And this pair of Alpine A110s, powered by Renault engines. The one on the left was built in 1966, and the one on the right is from 1976.


Rack and Ruin

The town of St Albans dates back to Roman times (when it was called Verulamium), so there are some interesting ruins. The ruins above are part of the Roman town wall and are situated in Verulamium Park overlooking the lake. The ruins below are from a 16th century manor house, built on the site of the 12th century Sopwell Nunnery.
