Versailles. Petit Trianon - Le Moulin. Vintage postcard (Les Editions d’Art Yvon)
The watermill cottage at Petit Trianon was built for Marie Antoinette between 1783 and 1788. Although some of the buildings on the Queen’s little retreat were actually used agriculturally, the wheel of the mill is only decorative, and was never used for grinding grain.
