My holiday snaps

Ah the fire at Notre Dame cathedral in Paris is the first thought that might come to mind. This is in fact the cathedral church of Nantes which was devastated by fire in 1972. My apologies for the terrible photograph of this painting. It is, of course, all the camera's fault.

Je ne savais pas qu'i y avait eu un incendie dans la cathédrale de Nantes.
Chad: This painting was hanging in the cathedral.
Remarkably similar Andrew....
Chad: I suppose we have forgotten this though we must have been aware at the time.

Yes, my first thought was Notre Dame. Has been the church of Nantes rebuilt, too?
Chad: It is rebuilt and the painting hangs in the cathedral.

A scene of horror Chad. I don't remember this, much to my shame, but I know I had other things on my mind in 1972..
Chad: Like you Tiff, I had not remembered.

I don't recall hearing of this, although I think I was only vaguely aware of France at this time. (Not, true - I had been there in 1969 - my first time abroad).
Chad: It’s funny how we cannot recall this event of a mere forty plus years ago.
It seems our French chums are a bit careless at fire prevention
Chad: Remember York!

I don't remember that, but I suspect it is tucked away somewhere in my brain, Chad
Chad: We are all in the same boat Lisl.
I was only thinking the other day that we haven't heard anything about Notre Dame recently, these days everything is a 5 minute news story fro the media before they move on to the next thing, usually bl**d* Brexit!
Chad: I agree about the way news stories are wal to wall and then completely dropped.

oh, my, devastating
Chad: It is for sure.
Send the camera back, Chad - there's obviously something seriously wrong with the optics! smile
Chad: Ha ha, it a bit old now.
i don't think that there is anything wrong with your photo Chad... it's the painting that looks like that....petersmile
Chad: You are too kind Peter, but I like it.

Eye witness views are often a bit shakey, Chad.
