A compelling 18-minute video, in English, working through Brittany in 1936, from St Malo down to Saint Nazaire (which was still part of Brittany until the early 1960s), stopping at Concarneau, Carnac, St. Anne d’Auray, Vannes and a few other places in between.

Covering tourism, religious gatherings, the Breton fishing industry (with fishermen at Concarneau or Douarnenez, which was the largest sardine fishery in France at the time,  landing large quantities of what look like tuna) and sailing history, this is an excellent glimpse into Breton life between the Great Wars.
