ca. 1875-1880 Petites tournures en crin de cheval et en métal (Musée municipal de Vire - Vire, Basse-Normandie France)

The commune of Vire was razed by the RAF in support of the D-Day landings of 6 June 1944; rebuilding began in the 1960s. Vire is at the bottom of the Normandy peninsula.


The bustle isn't dead, but it is very reduced in the later 1870s as seen in this photo.
