Beautiful photo set of historic seaweed farming

I just came accross this wonderful historic recreation of the traditional collection of “goemon” which is a type of seeweed on the Brittany coast near Plouguerneau which is about an hour and twenty minutes away from Douarnenez to the north of the city of Brest.
