100. Le mariage à l'ancienne. The wedding at the old manner.

Here you can see a group which make a wedding at the old manner. You can look at the old hats and there is also a choir girl (but in the past there were only choir-boys).
The photo was taken in Pont-sur-Sambre at the carnival parade of Mi-Carême two months ago.
You can see also in the back of the picture houses with blind windows. In the past people must pay much money for their taxes when they had many windows. The money that people had to pay at the town did depend of the number of windows there houses had. So that much people let close their windows with bricks.
