    Yikes -- should have recognized this one from walking in our own front door! Well, imagine having 6,000 of these prints in scrambled piles, sorting them according to country, and solving all but the 20 puzzles offered for help in Flickr. Something obvious in another context got past us for sure.

    Do I get a free Library card for being the first to correctly identify the picture? Or just everlasting fame?

  6. The Library of Congress 64 months ago | reply

    Everlasting fame it is! (The Library card is available for all who register to use the collections in D.C., www.loc.gov/rr/readerregistration.html)

    J'ajouterai que certaines partie de l'escalier de l'opéra de Paris ont été taillées dans du "marbre de Sampans" , pierre noble de ma région également utilisée pour des parties du socle de la statue de la liberté à New-york et que l'on retrouve dans de nombreux monuments Franc Comtois, comme cette chaire de la Basilique de Dole

    Extraordinaire, je l'adore! Si ça vous plaît, vous aller adorer l'application que j'ai juste lançé sur mon iPhone, une carte de l'exposition universelle de Paris de 1900. Ca, c'est super!
