    Hello,
    I think it is probably "VÉSINES" (with a final "s"). It is a little city into the department of LOIRET (department = district). VÉSINES is situated at ± 2 kilometers at the north-east from the city of MONTARGIS, and ± 70 km by the east from ORLÉANS (county-town of LOIRET). The region is named "CENTRE". VÉSINES is situated at ± 110 km from PARIS, by the south.
    The postcard's writer speaks about "les établissements Hutchinson, à Langlée, par Châlette (Loiret), bureau du personnel" (= Hutchinson factory, at Langlée, by Châlette (Loiret), staff office). CHÂLETTE-SUR-LOING (department of LOIRET) is situated near VÉSINES (± 2 km), on the other bank of the river "Loing".

    Be carefull : another city named "VÉSINES" is situated into the department of SAÔNE-ET-LOIRE, at ± 10 km by the north from MÂCON (county-town of SAÔNE-ET-LOIRE). The region is "BOURGOGNE". Lyon is at ± 85 km by the south and Paris ± 380 km by the north. In Wikipedfia, only the second VÉSINES (SAÔNE-ET-LOIRE) is described.
    Regards

    Correction :

    the second "VÉSINES" is certainly near MÂCON, but on the east bank of the river SAÔNE, consequently in the deparment of AIN (county town BOURG-EN-BRESSE). The region is "RHÔNE-ALPES".

    I think it is the first VÉSINES the good place (department of LOIRET, near MONTARGIS).

    Regards.

    Alain
