From Gill, France

Gill, France

We liked the area and found a small house by a river in a small town. It fulfilled our dreams and was close to shops, etc.. After retiring, we left Umbria for France in 2002. We feel welcome and at home here.


This postcard is one of several collated as part of collaboration between Dr Michaela Benson and the Migration Museum. A selection of these appears in the Postcards from the British in Europe installation in Departures, the museum's current exhibition exploring four centuries of emigration from Britain, bringing Britain’s emigration story and its emigrants into the national conversation about migration
