Annotation

Originally, there was in 1925 a statue of Ceccaldi by Léon Roussel, which was destroyed during the second World War. In 1964 it was replaced by this bust, which was made by the founder Susse after a model in possession of the Ceccaldi family. This bust is placed on the original pedestal, which is a bit oversized.
