Drawing in pencil: 'en voyage les trois photographes!' ca. 1870

Image of Drawing in pencil: 'en voyage les trois photographes!' ca. 1870

A vintage drawing in pencil with three itinerant photographers. The text, also in pencil, reads "En Voyage Les Trois Photographes!".
One person (the photographer?) is sitting on the car with a dog behind him. He's driving the first one! (an assistant?). He shouts something I can't read. The third one (another assistant?) is pushing/pulling on the 'photographic van' under a cloudy sky.

A very nice and fascinating 'primitive' caricature about the early days of photography.

ca. 19 x 10,50 cm
good condition, one larger spot and some wrinkling.

Rare!
