STEVE AND CAROLE IN VENCE

Brochures About Vence

Steve and Carole in Vence - Brochures About Vence

In addition to books about Vence I’ve been collecting other printed materials about our town. Things like brochures, fliers, hand-outs, etc. The older the better. These types of artifacts are harder to come by than books, people don’t seem to save them as much, but I’ve found a few amazing things dating back to the 1920s.

If you have any questions about any of these brochures, pamphlets, booklets and fliers, or would just like more information, drop me an email at steve@steveandcaroleinvence.com.
