Sur cette photo nous y découvrons une spécificité de la vieille plaine de France: un pailleux. Cee hommes de confiance des fermes assuraient le transport des produits locaux sur les marchés de Paris. Les chariots qu'ils conduisaient avec leurs attelages de chevaux pouvaient contenir jusqu'a 800 bottes de paille.

This photo is of special interest. It shows a "pailleux", or wagoner. These "pailleux" were men, well-trusted by farmers who would transport goods to the markets in Paris. The wagons they drove with their teams of horses could hold as many as 800 bales of straw.
