Description

A postcard depicting a drawing of the tomb of King Louis XVI of France and Queen Marie Antoinette, as it looked in the cemetery of the Madeleine prior to the construction of the Chapelle Expiatoire, in Paris, Île-de-France, France. Once the chapel was constructed, the remains were moved to Saint-Denis, but the chapel remained as a memorial.

This postcard is part of a collection of postcards kept by Lucile Campbell, a schoolteacher in Sanford, Florida, for 30 years. In 1931, she took advantage of a special rate for teachers and sailed to Europe, where she traveled for several months and is thought to have acquired many of these postcards. During the 1940-1941 school year, Campbell taught at Sanford Grammar School. Before her retirement in 1970, she taught at many other area schools, including the Oviedo School, Westside Grammar School, and Pinecrest Elementary School. Campbell used these postcards as aids in her classrooms to teach advanced subjects, such as Shakespearean drama. The collection, along with her other teaching aids, papers, and photographs, was later found at Sanford Grammar School after it became the University of Central Florida's Public History Center. Campbell's postcard collection and photographs provide insight into the life of a respected Florida educator.
