#Talbot Lago Type 26 Grand Sport Coupé (1950) -- Had it not been for the onset of war in 1939, the Talbot Lago might have been France's supreme racer of the 1940s. As it was, its 4.5-litre twin-cam engine won Grands Prix both before and after WW2, as well as Le Mans in 1950.
Le Monocle was a well-know lesbian bar located in Montmartre section of Paris, France, open from the 1920s thru the early 1940s. All the women there dressed as men, in Tuxedos, and wore their hair in a bob. The name Le Monocle derived from a fad at the time where women who identified as lesbian would sport a monocle to indicate sexual preference. The writer Colette once obsevered the fad by describing women in the area as “…often affecting a monocle and a white carnation in the buttonhole.”
