    Obviously they don't have many earthquakes there -- the room would be a toxic waste pit here in California by now!

    I vote Roger reports back with photos!

    Sean can temporarily appoint him, "Ambassador to APUG".

    Sean can wave a red dot artar over his head and splash him with Caffinol to make it official.

    BTW; does that one stoneware crock say, "RODINAL"?

    What a find! Considering that France went through
    two wars, it's a wonderful discovery. Marc
    Then there was the Franco-Prussian war of 1870-71.
    They lost some with that one. Dan

    Roger if you go im going too... I would love to shoot some Still Lifes.... Then use the money from the sell of the prints to keep the museum open... Talk about getting some good shots... I am seriously considering trying to get in touch with these people to go see this place.... maybe even volunteer my time to help out.... More pictures would be awesome... too.... If I hear anymore about this I will post it here...

    Was so excited by this discovery that I forgot that one. Shame on me who studied so much French history! *Tsk, tsk tsk*

    Folks,

    Now lets be careful here. We cannot all "descend" on the place en masse. Elsewise they'll have to do to this DR what they do with the Lauscaux (sp?) Cave and create a "re-creation" for visitors!

    I agree with Roger going in first. A picture of him at the chair will look contemporary to 1855!

    Great find, great fun - what a treat. Do you think that 150 years from now they'll find a "preserved lightroom" containing a PC loaded with PS?

    I think this place pre-dates even Rodinal. Didn't Rodinal originate in the late 1800s?

    Does anyone know the exact village or city this is in? I think I may be fairly close to this discovery. I'm in Germany, but near the French border (45 mins). I'm also a wet plate Collodion artist - I would like to get more info on this.

    Hi !
    The Nicephore Niepce * museum has a page about it :
    http://www.niepce.com/pagus/pagus-eve.html
    * He was _the_ inventor of photography ;-)
    BTW it was the lab of a very talented French Photographer, and his dead is suspected to be from cancer from the nasty chemicals he used at the time.

    My French is terrible at best, but I think I understand the article better in French than with Google's translation
