Ten francs or yellow


As the first of the month, today is the City Daily Photo theme day and while I didn't sign up for it, I wanted to acknowledge it anyway. Please visit the community webpage to see what the participants have put up. Click here.

Pictured above is the ten Swiss franc note (CHF 10) featuring the architect Le Corbusier (an old post mentioning him is here). This side of the note is labelled in French and Italian. German and Rumantsch appear on the reverse side.

Marvellous! I adored the image of Le Corbusier! I am a frustrated architect...

A very creative interpretation of the theme, using one of Switzerland's main 'indistry' symbols!

Well I learned something today! I will start a series soon on Menton DP about Corbusier's Promenade (the old sentier des douanes) from Cap Martin to Monaco. We'll also visit his cabanon, which is a mecca for architecture students. You probably know he drowned off cap martin. Now I know a little more thanks. A super post for today.

Wow - this is really great.
I still have some francs left - I'm going to look at them more intently.
(sorry if I'm repeating myself, but I loved visiting Ronchamp even on a misty winter's day)
