The Three Graces

France 1961

negative scan from my archives


This old woman was living in my basement in the house I was renting south of Paris in 1961. I didn't even know about her until I saw her out in the garden one day working away. This was a couple of months after I moved in. I had assumed that I was renting the WHOLE house. Boy, was I surprised to discover I had a "roommate " living in my basement! She and her fifteen cats were living there rent-free courtesy of my landlord.


NO, those are NOT cats on the spit! They are roasting a lamb :)
