River Loire at Blois


River Loire at Blois

The Jewish community of Blois, France, was massacred on May 26, 1171, after it was accused of the ritual murder of a Christian child.

This small sketch was made by Willaim Callow on a trip down the river Loire in 1856 and captures all of the most notable sites in Blois: the famous Chateau to the far left, the church of St. Nicholas alongside, and the eighteenth-century bridge of eleven arches designed by Jacques Gabriel.
