Storck WC

1920? Postcard presenting La Fontaine's WC text beside a colored illustration. A. Storck & Co. Deposé. €6 from ABC de la C.P.A., Lyon, at the Paris Post Card Exhibition, Jan., '05.

The illustration here may be somewhat simple and disappointing, but the border around it is very clever. Its top is formed by two storks' heads (no pun with the publisher!) holding bones in their beaks. Follow down either side, and you will find the stork's legs. Are those perhaps bones lying on the contract at the lower right of the frame? The writer of this card put a message onto its picture side.
