From my collection of La Mode Illustrée, December 7, 1873 issue. Marvellously detailed illustration of a group of Victorian children at play. Three young girls are playing with baby dolls in the foreground while an older girl in the background fusses with a doll wearing a wedding dress. One little boy is feinting with his toy sword as his older brother admires himself in the looking glass, a brave general dressed in regimental regalia.
