TMCM Croissant Fontane

1910?   Two (of apparently five) photographic postcards presenting La Fontaine's TMCM.  #3143/1 and #3143/5.  Ch. Fontane, Editeur.  Paris: Croissant.  $12 from Bertrand Cocq, Calonne Ricouart, France, Sept., '20.

Compare this pair with Croissant's similar work on MM and Croissant and Fontane's GA and TH.  Here again children carry the roles.  Again the first card presents the ornate title.  Again we have less colorful images inserted showing the parallel scenes among animals, here rats.  Are these cards hand-colored?
