On our walk up to Notre-Dame de la Garde, we stumbled on a bust of Louis Braille. Braille was born in a village north of Paris and is credited as the inventor of the six-dot system that allows blind people to read. Braille died of tuberculosis in Paris in 1852. One hundred years later, he was re-interred in the Pantheon. I don't know why there's a bust to Braille in Marseille, but it was a fun find!
