Tour de France, 1935. In a seemingly relaxed moment during the 17th stage from Pau to Bordeaux, Frenchman Paul Chocque (left) and Kurt Stettler of Switzerland stop for cool well water. The two men have the pail all to themselves, but it will take some extra effort to rejoin the peloton. The bike, which belongs to Chocque (No.128), is probably a "F.Pélissier". From "Le Miroir des Sports" No.841, 27 July 1935.
