Born in Coupvray

Photograph of Louis Braille's home in Coupvray, no date.

Photograph of Louis Braille's home in Coupvray.  A dirt road separates Louis' very simple stone house on the left from another house (possibly also belonging to the Braille family) on the right hand side.  A marble plaque indicating that the house was occupied by Louis is on the side of the building facing the viewer and a wooden harness maker building sign is visible on the other side of the building.  A cat sits on the road.  No date.
