Photographer's Note

During last summer vacation in Mauritius Island i couldn't wait to share and though, snap this original and rare way of paying for the bus trip ! I learned furthermore that this kind of ticket machine was sold by the RATP to the Mauritian Transport Corporation. The RATP - the Company which helds French Subway and bus transportation. The French used it in early 70's.

Waiting for your comments ;-)

Lors de mes derniéres vacances à l'Ile Maurice. Cet homme n'est autre que le 'controlleur de l'autobus', comme on l'appelle là-bas !;-) Il se deplace lors du voyage et on lui achète le ticket. Cette machine folklorique d`antan provient de la RATP, qui le leur a revendu. Tous les autobus de l`ile en ont un !! Les francais s en servaient parait t-il dans le milieu des années soixante dix.

J`attends vos commentaires ;-)
