Chez Aubert, Pl. de la Bourse. Imp. Aubert & Co. [n.d. c.1830.]
Two satirical scenes. One: An officer fears that his instrument is about to be taken away from him, but his is reassured that that isn't the case. Two: a couple looking astonished as a black man passes, but claims that he has been shooting so much to get a black figure like that.
