Bonjour, Paul Mason! I am descended from Jean de la Fontaine as well. I'm originally from Virginia but am living in Pennsylvania now. I've been searching for Fontaine sites since 2008 and just discovered the Fontaine-Maury Society online where I found this photo and the link to Panoramio.
I have made friends in Royan who are part of the Protestant community there and plan to return to Royan next June - looks like I will have to make a trip to Sévilly, among other places! I was eager to find this, thanks so much for posting!
An entire family of Peter Fontaine descendants now lives in the UK - in Norwich, the Liverpool area, and Torquay. I was just visiting them this spring. Where are you located in the UK? Sooner or later I will be there, tracking the Fontaines, and would love to meet you.
All the best, Sara Fontaine Gilliam Hopkins
This is the rock pile. Good whiting fishing between it and the adjacent beach. Good fishing for bass on the pile itself if you can hang there in the tide.
These are known locally as the three sisters. The ballast pile is known as the rock pile and is behind the camera on the south side of the sound.
Nice South states houses.
We have in Riga one area,where in Russian Empire
built in 1900-1914 "garden city" Kaizerwald modern-style architecture.They are similar to your home.But, to the north!
This house was built in 1911 by my great-grandfather, Byron Rogers, one of the most successful farmers in Glennville. This house was one of the most technologically advanced homes in this area, featuring a windmill to draw water from a well (not the well pictured here) and a Delco Generator, which supplied electricity for the house. It was the first home outside the city limits of Glennville to have electricity before Rural Electrification in the 1930s.
This house was built in 1910 by Russell Clayton Dubberly, first married to Dicy Easterling who died in 1913, then to her cousin in 1914. In 1917, they sold the house to Burley Beasley. The Beasleys lived here until 1947, when it was purchased by Mr. Jack Rimes, Sr. for a home and mortuary. The Rimes family operated the funeral home for 59 years and greatly served the community. The building is now home to Brannen-Kennedy Funeral Home.
Your photos are great. Thank you so much for posting and providing so much information. John "Duffy" Roger's was my great-grandfather. My mother was Lucy Rogers Kemp, sister of TH "Buster" Rogers. I grew up in Glennville, graduated Glennville High in 1980 and move away. For a breif time in the early 70's we rented the Hughes house behind the old Central Pharmacy. So your photos hit home.
Thank you for posting.

Most visitors come to the Smokies hoping to see a bear. Some 1,500 bears live in the park. From the big animals like bears, deer, and elk, down to microscopic organisms, the Smokies have the most biological diversity of any area in the world’s temperate zone.

Lovely photo of my business front! Thanks
Wonderful building. It appears to be an abandoned warehouse of some sort.
