Léon Blum returns from the United States (May 1946)

In late May 1946, a huge crowd at Orly Airport welcomes home Léon Blum, negotiator extraordinary of the French Republic in the United States, on his return from Washington where, on 28 May, after 11 weeks of negotiations, the Blum–Byrnes Agreement is signed which, in addition to the Lend-Lease arrangements, provides for the purchase by France of surplus American goods and for a loan for the reconstruction and modernisation of France.
