Last Sunday we had a surprise visit from the L. Rosengart France Club who were in Daglan for a short pit stop. The first thing that I noticed when I looked out from our balcony was a lot of people rushing from their renovated cars towards the fountain in the Place de la Liberté for a quick wash and a drink from the tap behind the fountain, it was a very hot afternoon with a temperature in the middle thirties.
A brief history.
Lucien Rosengart (1881-1976) was a talented businessman and engineer who had a successful engineering business by 1905. In the middle of the 1920’s he saw an opportunity to develop a car business which became a success under the name of Rosengart. Development continued in the 1930’s and below are just a few of the cars that he produced.
A good view of the many cars in the Place de la Liberté in Daglan one hot Sunday afternoon.
You can probably see the progressive development of the car in the above picture.
One of our favourites.
It’s simply gorgeous.
Imagine these cars racing around the race track at Le Mans or Monte-Carlo.
One from the 1920’s.
I just could not miss out the American Gangster looking car of the 1930’s.
