Historic French home office discovered

The 150-year-old laboratory of French photographic pioneer Fortuné Joseph Petiot-Groffier (1788-1855) has just been rediscovered, and it's in pretty decent shape for a home office that hasn't been dusted for over a century. You can read more about the story at the Nicephore Niepce site dedicated to the great man. For those of you with good French, there's lots more detail.
