Peugeot Triporteur

By TrevBatWCC    
Spotted this three-wheeled motorcycle parked alongside one of the many food & drinks kiosks in Cannes. As can be seen, it's a Peugeot, and on searching for some info on it, apparently it's a 1953 Peugeot TN55 Triporteur, and I believe probably used for selling ice cream.

Single Raw images processed in Adobe Camera Raw 7, tweaked in Photomatix Pro 5 and Photoshop Elements 11.

Thanks again to everyone for your votes & comments on my previous uploads, it really is appreciated and encouraging.

Looks like a nifty bit of kit for storing your camera gear on tour, Trev.

Think Steve MacQueen should have had one of these in The Great Escape Trev. Looks great and so are your captures.

CAnnes....how many memories than brings back! My first Pastis -I thought it was a soft drink, I was only 15! A girl called Jocelyn, very French and very friendly - I was 16 by then...nuff said! Can't remember seeing one of these though. There again, I wasn't looking for one either, my attention was elsewhere...
