The capital of Normandy was occupied by the British and Canadians in the beginning of July 1944 after the heavy bombing (Operation Charnwood).
The picture was taken on 9 July 1944 with v.l.n.r. Bernhard Hoo, John Mc Conville and J.R. Kostick from the Canadian 3rd Infantry. And of course the beautiful poteau (panneau on one leg) Michelin.
The original is unfortunately no longer to be found but this Poteau Michelin has come to life at Vinsign and is an exact reproduction of the highest quality.
Completely handmade with solid beech and authentic materials as base.
The font and the setting is an exact copy of the typical Michelin style.
Also the ratio and profiling of the concrete border can not be distinguished from the original Michelin.
This panneau comes with a Vinsign certificate, a unique production number and a luxurious postcard with photo and description of the original.
