Streets

 

The first names of streets being used in our countryside are common names. It served, first and foremost, to describe the place in order to better situate it.

The street of "meuniers" - millers - is the street where the mill stood. In the street "briqueterie" - brickyard -, there were the brick ovens. The street "d'en Bas" below, is situated lower than the others.

The proper names will be used later, with names dedicated in memory of local figures, who have shapes our history. There are some streets below have disappeared or have changed.
