Roger Hottin and Maurice Henriot from the association Les Amis des Clos à Pêches in Bagnolet. "The towns surrounding Paris were market gardening towns. The hillocks between Montreuil and Bagnolet were covered in gladioli that were sold in the Sunday market. Today, there's nothing. In the 1950s, the suburbs were still the fruit and vegetable garden of Paris, there were the asparagus from Argenteuil, the peaches from Montreuil and Bagnolet."
