Description

Pinocchio stands on the beach with his elderly father and turns his back to his former companions, the Fox and the Cat, who beg for charity.

The caption reads in the original Italian: Addio, mascherine ! Ricordatevi del proverbio che dice : « Chi ruba il mantello al suo prossimo, per il solito muore senza camicia. »

Caption based on M. A. Murray’s translation from The Story of a Puppet: or The Adventures of Pinocchio. London: T. Fisher Unwin, 1892.
