Photographer's Note

Marché Couvert (1865) à Colmar. Construit en briques, surmonté d’une charpente métallique reposant sur des piliers en fonte, le Marché Couvert conserve toujours sa vocation d’origine, celle d’un marché aux fruits et légumes. Il accueille, du mardi au samedi, une vingtaine de commerçants. Sa situation au bord de la Lauch permettait jadis aux maraîchers d’accoster directement au pied du bâtiment et d’y décharger leurs produits. (Autre point de vue en Workshop).

Covered Market (1865) in Colmar. Built in brick, surmounted by a metal frame resting on cast iron pillars, the covered market keeps always its original vocation, that of a fruit and vegetable market. It welcomes, from Tuesday to Saturday, around twenty traders. Its location on the edge of the Lauch once allowed gardeners to dock directly at the foot of the building and unload their products. (Another point of view in Workshop).
