Robert Velter, aka Rob-Vel, in Saint-Malo, Ille-et-Vilaine (35)

Robert Velter (1909-91), more popularly known as 'Rob-Vel', is the children's cartoonist most remembered as the creator of Spirou. He is buried in the Cimetiére de Lorette. The plaque below pays tribute to him, although another plaque on this grave has gone: formerly this was a grave with a cross, but it has since been replaced by a new one. As far as I know, this is the only published shot of the grave in its present state.
