Photographer's Note

The boulangerie (baker's) remains an integral part of French life and is still to be found in many French villages, despite the increasing encroachments of the supermarkets. This one stands opposite the church in the village of Léoville.

Léoville is a commune in the Charente-Maritime department in the Poitou-Charentes region in south-western France. The village lies some 12 kilometres south-east of the sous-prefecture town of Jonzac at an altitude of 40 metres,

The village lies on the left bank of the Lariat, tributary of the Seugne. In 2006, the estimated population of the commune was 309. Its inhabitants are known as "Léovillois". In the 19th century, it was noted for the production of clogs and walnut oil.
