[The Dordogne and navigation]

[This marker is composed of four panels.]
Jusqu'? l'arriv?e du chemin de fer en 1884, la Dordogne a connu une intense activit? marchande.Les flottilles venues, d'Argentat transportaient du bois, des fromage et des peaux brutes.Les bateliers de La Rogue-Gageac et de Castlenaud allaient s'approvisionner en merrain (bois de ch?ne d?bit? en planche pour la tonnellerie) jusqu'en Limousin et en acheminaient une partie ? Bergerac. Ils descendaient jusqu'? Libourne les vins de Domme et de Daglan, des ch?taignes, du bl?, du seigle et des grains de geni?vre. ? la remonte, la Dordogne n'?tait navigable que jusq'? Souillac. On transportait de sel, de poissons s?ch et des produits de ?les comme, le caf? ou le sucre. Sous Louis XV pr de huit cents bateaux de sel passaient chaque ann?e sous Domme.Le halge ? le remonte utilisait des attelages de boeufs. Mais faute de boeuf, il se faisait ? la force des bras. Cet usage fut interdit en 1837.

le courau
Le courau ?tait un bateau ? fond plat de 10 ? 50 tonneaux. Il ?tait ?quip? de deux ? trois paires d'avirons, d'une corde de halage, d'une m?ture mobile et d'une voile carr?e.Il descendait des fromages, des ch?taignes, des peaux et remontait du sel, des poissons s?ch?, des produits des ?les; le caf? et le sucre.

le gabare
Avec sa coque ventrue, la gab?re ?tait adapt?e aux conditions fluviomaritimes de l'estuaire de la Gironde.

l'auberge des garbaries
Il y avait ? Saint-Julien de C?nac un bureau de navigation o? les bateaux devaient faire viser leur feuille de route.La maison juste au-dessus de la chapelle ?tait un auberge. Les gabariers s'arr?taient pour ?changer des nouvelles, faire et d?faire de r?putations commerciales ou tout simplement y jouer, y manger ou y passer la nuit.

[English translation by Google Translate with modifications:
The Dordogne and navigation
Until the arrival of the railway in 1884, the Dordogne has experienced intense commercial activity.Fleets came, from Argentat carrying wood, cheese and raw hides.The boatmen of Rogue-Gageac and Castlenaud brought staves (wood cut into boards ch?ne for cooperage) until Limousin and [acheminaient?] part in Bergerac. They descended to Libourne with wine from Domme and Daglan, chestnuts, wheat, rye and juniper berries. Returning upstream, the Dordogne was navigable until Souillac. They carried salt, dried fish products and [scarce items] like, coffee or sugar. Under Louis XV nearly eight hundred boats passed Domme each year carrying salt.The upstream trip back used teams of oxen. But without oxen, it was the force of arms [human-power]. This practice was banned in 1837.

the courau
The courau was a flat-bottomed boat 10 to 50 tons. It was equipped with two to three pairs of oars, rope tow, a mobile mast and a square sail.It descended carrying cheese, chestnuts, skins and acended with salt, dried fish, products of the islands; coffee and sugar.

the barge
With its bulbous hull, the barge was adapted to the conditions of the sea-river Gironde estuary.

the garbaries' inn
There was at Saint-Julien de C?nac a shipping office where the boats had planned there route.The house just above the chapel was a hostel. The boatmen stopped to exchange news, make and unmake business reputations or just play, eat or spend the night.]
