Public Places in Bordeaux, France

Bordeaux is known for its wine, but the downtown is also on World Heritage list.  This beautiful public garden still exists as a place of tranquility when you want to escape from the hustle and bustle of the city. The old photos of the garden have a certain air of romance and mystery.

You can still buy fresh produce at the Marché des Capucins, although it looks a lot more modern today.

Here are the backs of the postcards in the same order.


  1. Interesting...what are those boxes on the sidewalk?

  2. The big boxes are planters for warm-weather trees, which then get wheeled into the greenhouse for winter. There's also a box of sorts in the second picture, and I don't know what that is.

  3. It's years and years since I was in Bordeaux, and the only marché I remember was the supermarché. It looks much nicer in the postcards.

  4. it must have been wonderful to stroll in the gardens of that era, the market hall postcard is just so filled with atmosphere.
