Raymond De Seze division 53

So, I've started collecting vintage postcards of Pere Lachaise cemetery. I'm up to more than 65 and still counting. . . or rather still adding. 

The singular advantage of these cards is that since most are more than a century old, they can give us a good idea of what the particular grave site looked like when it was much newer. And hey, they're tres cool!

Anyway, here's Raymond De Seze, one of the lawyers who defended Louis XVI -- not something one would want on their resume given the result but he had moxie that's for sure.
