Besoin d'un plus petit 1955

1955 Postcard playing humorously on La Fontaine's moral for LM: "On a souvent besoin d'un plus petit que soi."  $5 from an unknown source, Feb., '22.

The middle-aged couple has gone out leaving grandpa, their child, and three dogs at home.  The child has used his car to pull a pulley around the lamp to raise grandpa up so that he can get at the jar of sausages on top of a cabinet.  I wish I could make out the rest of the artist's name after "Jean du."  Nice use of color!  I am surprised at the English translation of La Fontaine's moral.
