It wasn't always like that.
Over the next few weeks I shall present to you a selection of portraits from my collection.
Study them and imagine what the person's life was like.
Mademoiselle Renson, Belgian.
86 Boulevard St. Germain, Paris.
7th June 1917.
Her country has been occupied by the Germans and she is now asking for permission to live in Paris.
I wonder where the rest of her family is?
