Photographer's Note

Small Norman village, my eyes stopped on this stoned house, adorned with an old advertisement for alcohol: the Noilly Prat.
Joseph Noilly, a herbalist, developed the first formula in 1813. It was the first example of a dry vermouth and is among the golden, straw and white vermouths generally known as "French Vermouth". Noilly Prat is widely used in cooking, and extensively used for sauces, especially to accompany fish.

This choice of framing, not to show the full name, is justified by the fact that the house is situated on the roadside. As often for this kind of ancient publicity.
I would have move back a lot to have the side of the house with full designation, and include the really not great environment. A flat picture that does not please me at all.
I preferred the suggestion.
