Personal story

In this photo, my little brother Patrick is posing in the gardens of the Palace of Versailles wearing his first communion suit, an Eton suit, based on the English student model that was very much in style in those days. Like everyone in Versailles, we came to the park to take pictures on major occasions, such as weddings or first communions. The people of the town spent more time in the park than they do now, it was their public park.
