The last guettor has been Théodore Tourniquet. Here we can see him on the platform giving a last glance on the city of Boulogne-sur-mer in 1922. In the foreground we can see where the guettors including our ancestor Jehan de Bresme walked their rounds for centuries. Drawing by Dr. H. Gros. Taken from Les dossiers de l'histoire boulonnaise, no. 27, 1981, page 4.
