A wonderful surprise awaited me from Rue de Rome in Marseille.  Basically because all roads lead to Rome in the end.  This one is straight out of the 15th century and depicts a famous scene when a woman asked the wise men of the village if they could invent a machine that could wash clothes.Needless to say that it took the wise men another 450 years to invent the modern day washing machine.  And alas, all the roads now a day lead to Paris & the Moulin Rouge. (The first place in Paris to have a washing machine.)

Thank you Richard, what lovely writing.  It would make any monk's jaw drop.
