    • A little bit. If you click on the photo or the ‘credit’ at the bottom it will take you to the site I got the shot from. Seems the lady was very famous and loved having her photo taken…. this was late 1890s! The post is an excellent account of searching for her grave in a famous Paris cemetery…. well worth a read.
