Long Description:

[FR]

Une barre en fer forgée relie les 2 piliers de l’arcade centrale de l'hôtel de ville : il s’agit d’une aune, unité de mesure des drapiers (environ 1mètre et 20 centimètres), utilisée lors des grands marchés médiévaux, témoignant de la tradition textile de la région, tradition qui connut un regain au XVIIIème siècle grâce à la culture du lin.

[EN]

A wrought iron bar connects the 2 pillars of the central arcade of the town hall : it is an "aune", a unit of measurement for drapery (about 1m and 20 centimeters), used at major medieval markets, testifying to the region's textile tradition, a tradition that was revived in the 18th century thanks to linen cultivation.
