The guestbook of the
Hotel des Grands Hommes

Hôtel des Grands Hommes, Our favourite things

If you don’t know the amazing story behind the 1940s-50s guestbook of the Hôtel des Grands Hommes (actually, two books that cover the period from 1946 to 1952), you might like to read our initial article here!

As promised, here are a few more pages to check out. Other will be posted in the coming months.

First is a post-war poem from a certain Russell Carpenter, then there’s a little quoting of Keats (followed by a cheeky rhyme) and to finish off, some kind words about football and the ‘entente cordiale’.

To zoom in and read each page, click on the fullscreen button at the bottom right of the image below.

We’ll have more pages to show you next month!
