Description

A postcard depicting the interior of the Chapel of King Louis XVI of France, also known as the Chapelle Expiatoire, in Paris, Île-de-France, France. The chapel was erected in 1814 on the interment site of Louis XVI, also known as Louis Capet, and Queen Marie Antoinette, baptised Maria Antonia Josepha Johanna, after their remains were moved to Saint-Denis. The exterior of the chapel, once surrounded by cypress trees, was converted into a public garden, which the postcard shows, in 1862.

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.
