A Parisian Apartment Left Untouched For Over 70 Years Was Discovered in the Quartier of Pigalle

Apologies if this has been posted about before, but I hadn't seen it and it seemed relevant to our interests.

From the article: The owner of this apartment, Mrs. De Florian left Paris just before the rumblings of World War II broke out in Europe. She closed up her shutters and left for the South of France, never to return to the city again. Seven decades later she passed away at the age of 91. It was only when her heirs enlisted professionals to make an inventory of the Parisian apartment she left behind, that this time capsule was finally unlocked.

The pictures, especially of the old toys, are really amazing.
