Travel by sea was an essential part of any vacation and an indispensable part of life on the coast, and it set the pace for daily life of the inhabitants in Honfleur, Trouville, Caen and the other resorts of the Côte Fleurie (Flowery Coast) for nearly a century, from the 1820s until the end of the 1940s.
This mini-exhibition in the Architecture Pavilion offers an overview of this somewhat forgotten means of transport, which was nevertheless intrinsic to life on the Côte Fleurie, through a historical approach on the development of maritime liaisons and through the more intimate testimonies of travelers of the time.
This exhibition was made possible with the support of the Musée Villa Montebello, Trouville-sur-Mer, the Musée départemental Albert Kahn, Boulogne-Billancourt
and private collectors : Bernard et Françoise Dutour, Jean-Marc Noël – fonds Augustin-Normand and Marie-Françoise Moisy.
Curator: Roma Lambert
