Pere-Lachaise -- in the beginning

Alexandre-Theodore Brongniart's map of Pere-Lachaise from 1813

and the 1813 map overlaying the 1884 Bezodis map of Pere-Lachaise, which is much as it looks today

Just discovered this blog through a search for Sophie Blanchard. Amazing depth of info about the cemeteries! Will take me forever to read through it all! Do you have a Twitter account for this blog? Easier for the lazy types to follow when you can just click through a link from Twitter! Many questions about the cemeteries but I'll read through the archives, sure many questions are answered within! :)
