A growing archive

The magazine "La sardine du Croisic. Petit poisson, grande histoire", as well as the magazine published in 2004 by the Institut CGT d'histoire sociale de la Bretagne on the occasion of the 80th anniversary of the strike of the Douarnenez sardine workers, were given to us by a kind Mrs Béatrice Verney, president of the Société des Amis du Croisic. This magazine was published last September, at the same time as the Musée de la conserverie de Loctudy officially opened its doors to the general public. An exhibition on the theme of the magazine opens today at the Maison du Patrimoine in Le Croisic and will be open to the public free of charge on Wednesdays and Sundays from 4 to 6.30pm until 4 September 2022.

The magazine on the 80th anniversary of the Douarnenez sardine workers' strike was offered to the association of the Friends of the Loctudy cannery by Robert Salaun, departmental president of the CGT Institute of Local History of Brittany, and Gaston Balliot, a Loctudist passionate about social history. This review was published in the context of the symposium devoted in November 2004 to the 80th anniversary of the victorious struggle of the Douarnenez sardine workers.
