Steaming Off To The Afterlife

Friday’s  Challenge 

In today’s challenge, show us what “gone, but not forgotten” means to you. 

Take 2, something completely different, a steampunk tomb in Montmartre cemetery, Paris. It’s a French TARDIS, I’m sure.

Yet again, the French remain stylish in death. I need to research who was buried here.

UPDATED. M. Lemaitre owned metal working factories in Paris. Francois Cavé was one of the early builders of steam engines in France.   http://www.montmartre-secret.com/article-cimetiere-montmartre-tombeau-etrange-cave-lemaitre-50503585.html  (en français)
