Steaming Off To The Afterlife


Friday’s  Challenge 

In today’s challenge, show us what “gone, but not forgotten” means to you. 

Take 2, something completely different, a steampunk tomb in Montmartre cemetery, Paris. It’s a French TARDIS, I’m sure.



Yet again, the French remain stylish in death. I need to research who was buried here.

UPDATED. M. Lemaitre owned metal working factories in Paris. Francois Cavé was one of the early builders of steam engines in France.  (en français)

  1. Haha, it does look like a tardis and yes, typically French, very elegant.
