On Saturday, September 16, Monique and I attended a “Heritage Days” celebration at Le Beau Chêne, the villa in the town of Le Vésinet in which Josephine Baker lived at the height of her career. Members of La Société d’Historie du Vésinet gave guided tours of the grounds. At 4:00 o’clock, L’Orchestre d’Harmonie du Vésinet performed a number of popular 20th-century French melodies, including J’ai Deux Amours, Miss Baker’s emblematic song. A good time was had by all!
