Great bernardg 2006-06-16 17:14

Hello Filipe,
The onion of Roscoff has a whole history and the Roscovites are proud of it. Here, doubtless the bicycle (a Johnny's bicycle) is used as decoration, but the unit is successful with the wood of the shop in Ouessant blue and the color well dew of onions.
The behind plane character (the crepe amateur) supplements the scene well.
To go further on the Johnnies (people which were/are going in England to sell the onions), there is many information available on the Net. Here page which has the merit to propose a Breton version, ...and another English.

Default To bernardg: Onions

Salut Bernard
Such an interesting story, I didn't knew. And it's connect to a portuguese monk!
When I saw the bycicle at the fornt door of the creperie, I thought that it was like marketing thing. I never thought that it has a story behind.
Thanks for sharing,

P.S.- You have been a bit far away! Too much work?
