La Mode illustrée: journal de la famille 1861
Join us Billy. Join us.
Are we eating supper?
I have so many questions. Are they eating the mysterious floating lady, or regurgitating her? They are well-dressed children and obviously out to play. Why are they not supervised? Wouldn't this be a wise activity to supervise? Also, the balloon. That sad little balloon is about to float away, just like little Billy's dreams of having a nutritious meal with friends. The French word "rébus" means puzzle, and I fully understand that sentiment. I am puzzled as to why 19th century children in France are manifesting feet in their mouths.
