Georges Penabert Photographs Jane Mary Thorn

I am so grateful to a fellow history lover for this new photo of Jane Mary Thorne (de Pierres). Laurent from Le Manuscrit Francais has come into possession of many papers and letters pertaining to the de Pierres family. Some of these are letters between the Empress Eugenie and Jane Thorne, others are from Louis Napoleon to her daughter Jeanne Marie. It is a veritable treasure trove.

This photo is part of the collection and was taken by Georges Penabert, a French photographer. Isn’t it beautiful.

I have some more exciting things to share soon!
