Passport Portraits of Yesteryear no. 33

Continuing the series of passport portraits in my collection.
Peruse and wonder.
Paul Godart is 34 yrs. old and is the works manager for the shipyard of Germe et Jouy, a company in Boulogne building trawlers, patrol boats and dredgers. He lives at the factory.

This is his photograph on his safe-conduct issued to him on 22nd June 1918 by the controller of the armies in the north of France to allow him to travel in and around Boulogne within limits of about five miles.

The means of transport allowed him?

A bicycle.
