Post 10. Old bread oven

The furnace was operating in the nineteenth and early twentieth century, probably until 1912, when a new oven that is still used today was built.

In 1930 it was sold to Julien Epiney. Unfortunately, no archive exists about its construction and the end of the baking of rye bread in Pinsec that marked the memory of the inhabitants. This bread was particularly good, because the flour used was from grain grown in terraced fields surrounding the village. The grain was ground at Martinet in Vissoie by Symphorien Florey who was also a storyteller.
