We are unbelievably saddened by the fire at Notre Dame Cathedral on April 15, 2019. With so many emotions and questions about the tragedy in Paris, France we wanted to express our support for the Parisians and the millions of people around the world who love this building as we do.
A grave loss like this really brings home the importance of documenting our historic treasures. Not only to record their condition through the years, but for the unimaginable task of having to rebuild and restore a damaged building. We will be keeping an eye on this situation and we are certain to discuss the developments in future podcasts.
