Black and White Digital Photo File (jpg)
Gaston Coury, twenty nine, skilled mechanic at the Genevilliers power plant near Paris, seen at home with his wife Arlette. When this picture was taken, early in 1949, their monthly budget added up to 60,000 francs ($200) – 34,000 earned by the husband and 26,000 earned by the wife as postal clerk. This combined income was sufficient to furnish their three room flat in Asnieres near Paris.
