Parisian Time Capsule

Did you hear?! An apartment in Paris was entered for the first time in 70 years! A giant time capsule right in the heart of the 9th arrondissement between the Pigalle red light district and Opera. The woman who owned it recently passed away at the age of 91. She left her Paris flat before World War II for the south of France and never returned. After all this time, it must have been like stepping back into the past, all be it a little dustier! One of the major discoveries? A painting of Madame Marthe de Florian by Giovanni Boldini that sold at auction for €2.1 million!There is more to this than what I wrote. Visit The Telegraph and Paris Atelier for the details! It is completely fascinating to me!
