A series of photos taken with a Voigtlander Vito B a long long time ago. Digitally reproduced from 35mm colour slides. No effort has been made to improve their quality. What you see is what you get, after such a long hibernation period. Dust and scratches included.

Posted hoping that my good friends of Pano’ including Bernard Bost will verify their location.

Une série de photos prises avec un Voigtlander Vito B il ya longtemps. Reproduites numériquement à partir de diapositives 35 mm couleur. Aucun effort n'a été fait pour améliorer leur qualité. Ce que vous voyez est ce que vous obtenez, après une si longue période d'hibernation. La poussière et des rayures inclus.

Posté espérant que mes bons amis de Pano "y compris Bernard Bost vérifiera leur emplacement.

Dans le parc du casino de Vals-les-Bains, une source intermittente jaillit toutes les six heures. Ce phénomène naturel est la combinaison d'un réservoir d'eau et d'un réservoir de gaz. La hauteur de la colonne peut atteindre 16 m et le débit se maintient aux environs de 775 litres par sortie.

This spring became active in 1865 after a drilling in the ground and it was named after the engineer, 'puit Firmin'. It flows every six hours and can have an outflow of 775 litres and reach 16 metres in height. There is a strong smell of sulphur that some may find overwhelming. The spring flows at 5.30am, 11.30am, 5.30pm and 11.30pm in summer and at 4.30am, 10.30am, 4.30pm and 10.30pm in winter.

1960's? I love the way the crowd progressively looks further up. :P The couple in the centre, trench coats and sunglasses - American?

I don't think so? They have no camera! ;))

Hi Ray,

L’emplacement de ta photo est OK ! C’est facile pour moi ! Il y a la Source intermittente, puis la rivière La Volane et de l’autre coté la piscine olympique de Vals-les-bains que l’on voit bien sur la petite carte. Ta photo est très ancienne, je ne connais Vals que depuis 35 ans au moins, mais je pense que ta photo est antérieure à ma première venue à Vals ! Un jour, j’ai vu la source monter plus haut que la cime des sapins !

Amitiés,

Bernard
