The villa in 2012. Inset: Joanne at the front gate.

After I found the address of the Neuilly villa in one of M. Richard's archive documents, Joanne was able to walk up to the villa gate in June 2012. 

She was unannounced but the wife of the current owner let her snap a photo of the house in its current condition. The woman told Joanne that she knew a bit about the history of Joseph Leibman. 

This was now her private home and she did not wish to invite Joanne inside or share any recent developments. 

Still we are sure of one thing: If walls could talk, the plasterwork at 31 rue de la Saussaye would have interesting tales to tell.
