Not exactly "news" but the pictures were interesting.
Very interesting! How I would have loved to explore the place.
I love that they describe him as having "made the discovery," like it was a hidden tomb deep below the earth's surface. This was in Paris, it's hard to imagine how it went untouched for so long. As there's turnover in the neighborhood you would think someone would either be too curious to leave things be or greedy enough to make a move for the property. It's also hard to believe that she never once returned or tried to sell the property since she obviously wasn't using it.
Just strange all around! But very interesting.
I'm a bit skeptical that an apartment could sit totally untouched for that long, too. But the pictures are definitely interesting.
I too would like a stuffed emu.
It's Paris, it's usual to not pay attention to the most obvious things.
This appartment is so alike a house where my parents used to work when I was around 3 years old. Same kind of furnitures. Except that was cleaner (my mother was in charge of the housework after all).
I like the Gauloise carton on the 2nd picture.
I found it quite interesting. Would have liked to see additional pictures.
I just wonder why this wasn't discovered much earlier. One can go 70 years without paying taxes in Paris? Surely, someone would have foreclosed on this a long time ago for unpaid taxes or something?
No one said she wasn't paying her taxes. Actually, articles in French said she was.
Some people are just strange like that.
She paid taxes but never went back and never had anyone do anything with the property? That's weird.
That's unusual but not impossible. That makes you wonder about this woman's life. That could be an interesting story
^Yes, I'd like to know more about her.
