Héliotypie Dugas GA

1908?   Three numbered black-and-white photographic postcards (out of a series of ?) offering a milder version of GA.  Cards 2-4.  Nantes:  Héliotypie Dugas et Cie.  Cliché Audiard.  $30 from Bertrand Cocq, Calonne Ricouart, France, Sept., '18.

The ant in this version seems much friendlier.  She is sharing food from the start.  On Card #3, she asks what the cicada did all summer.  The cicada has a hat that is wonderfully outrageous!  Her dress seems to depict her as living at a level beyond that of the peasant ant.
