Appears to be a drawing in French language that is quite old.

Reverse translation shows the word "dairy" "lantern" "frying whiting"

Is this an educational tool? Anyone have insights as to age and purpose? 13.5" by 10.5"

I think it must an old drawing about life in the countryside. So it could be for educating city kids :-)
On the bottom right its says "Fait à la main d’apres l’original": made by hand after the original.

It would have been better with photos of all the text bits, since the main photo is quite small.

But here is what I have from the text:
decrotez la praticue (“the doctor is leaving”)
à la petites loteri (at the little lottery)
à la putte d’avoine (something with (a sac of) oat)
le ramcheur (the rambler)
merlans a Frire (whiting pan? (I don't know what that is)
Bon vinaigre (good vinegar)
La laitiere (the milk girl)
Le Falot Et des raves (? - Google Translate can't handle that).

But it is strange that I do not get relevant hits from those text bits!


I recommend the Art forum at BidtoArt.com
