Hand-Tinted French FC Baker and Boy

1910? FC inset into a larger picture of a boy begging bakery from a baker. Hand-tinted. Sazerac 3968. Paris. $9.99 from Stefano Nels, Columbia, SC, through eBay, July, '05.

This is a cute scene, if not altogether plausible. A boy dressed as a baker holds a tray of bakery. A younger lad with red-colored suspenders raises a hand begging for some of what this baker has to offer. Is he praising his baker's uniform? The coloring of FC in the upper right is particularly nice.
