Description

A mature Parisian couple is seen above the waist walking in the street. He has a runny nose and a scarf wrapped around the lower part of his face, she holds a handkerchief to her mouth while looking downward. In the near background a man comes from the opposite direction, coughing and pressing a hand to his chest.

This illustration was published in Le Charivari on February 18, 1864. It is part of the miscellaneous series titled Actualités.

The caption reads in the original French: Paris grippé
