Another selection of pictures which merge old postcards with the same views today!
Where 45°N meets the meridian
Invisible Bordeaux and Bordeaux 2066 join forces on a rainy roadtrip to visit the point where the Greenwich meridian and the 45th parallel north intersect in Puynormand!
Quirky benches, recycled tin sculptures, beehives, eco-toilets and a view over the racecourse: the Bois du Bouscat has it all!
The 45th Parallel mills
Eighteenth-century mills in Saint-André-de-Cubzac still enjoy one of the finest panoramic views in the area... and happen to be located on the 45t Parallel north!

The Bois du Bouscat provides a landscaped walk in the woods which was two years in the making and was officially opened in June 2013 by local mayor Patrick Bobet.
