Photographer's Note

"Arnac-Pompadour (Occitan: Arnac Pompador) is a French commune in the Corrèze department in the Limousin region of central France.

The inhabitants of the commune are known as Pompadours

In Limousin and on directional signs, the commune is usually simply called Pompadour although the actual village of Pompadour is shared between Arnac-Pompadour and Saint-Sornin-Lavolps.

The name of Pompadour became world famous due to the favourite of Louis XV: Madame de Pompadour (Jeanne-Antoinette Poisson) to whom the King gave the chateau of Pompadour and the associated title of Marquise.

The town is famous for its chateau and its stud farm, the Pompadour National Anglo-Arab Stud, headquarters of the French National Stud and France's principal production centre of Anglo-Arabian horses (although the racecourse is actually outside the commune)."
