Dodo at The African Museum of the Island of Aix

A Dodo at The African Museum of the Island of Aix is a French museum located on the island of Aix in Charente-Maritime . Sharing the label museum of France with the nearby Napoleonic Museum, it houses the hunting trophies of Baron Gourgaud (1891-1944), as well as a series of ethnographic objects from the African continent, staged according to the customs of the 1930s. The Dodo (Raphus cucullatus) of Mauritius is only a reproduction, since the species had been extinct since the 18th century. Date: circa 1920s

The Kitchen / Smokehouse , Fontevrault Abbey, Chinon, France

The Kitchens / Salmon Smokehouse, Fontevrault Abbey, Near Chinon, Anjou, Loire Valley, France - pictured before restoration (before the chimneys were added back on). The byzantine kitchens, built in Charente stone are an architectural peculiarity of the Royal Abbey, built in octagonal form, its roof prickling with pointy chimneys and fish-scale slating, providing much debate for architectural historians. Within, fish (mostly salmon, then abundant in the Loire) was prepared, constituting the nuns staple diet. Date: circa 1910s
