As Vannes made mistakes in his writing on HUSSON, it is hard to know if anything he says is correct about HUSSON during this time period.

Between 1910 - 1920, Auguste HUSSON moved to Lyon,and then around 1925  settled in the Parisian suburb of Alfortville, where he established his final workshop at 71 quai Blanqui.
