Panneau Valognes 1944
Valognes; a 2000 year old Gallic village on the peninsule Cotentin, lacated next to the old ‘Route Nationale 13’.
The old name was Alauna.
After far to violent allied bombings on the 6th. 7th. and 8th. of june 1944, the Americans moved on June 20. from Montebourg to Cherbourg crossing Valognes.
They found an nearly empty city
The (art historical) city was not what it used to be anymore, when it was called ‘Petit Versailles Normand’.
This sign is an exact reproduction of the original, the GI’s found in 1944.
The colour and font are identical to the example of an old movie shot we used from june 21, 1944.
This sign comes with a Vinsign certificate, a unique production number and a luxury postcard with picture and description of the original.
