After 47 years, the Lyon wholesale market is moving to a newer location. On December 31st, at 5am, on a cold and wet day, I was there for the last day where the market would operate.
No beautiful arty stuff here, just the plain real life of those guys, having for some worked their whole life there, melancholic about leaving the place.
This gallery is a tribute to these guys, smiling at 5AM.
