Fiat at Menton

The Menton Frontier Again

Menton, France, classic car

Here’s another nice postcard of the Menton border crossing and two very different looking policemen to the ones we saw in A Phantom at Menton. We’re pretty close to the white triangle now!

It was written on 29 April 1921 and posted to a Mademoiselle Eugenie in Conteville (Somme) on 3 May.

And the car? I’m thinking a pre-First World War Fiat?

And 1861? That was when the area (the Comté de Nice) was bought by Napoleon III for 4 million Francs from Monaco and became part of France.

I wonder why those people are loitering there?
