Description

View of the building where the weekly French newspaper L’Illustration used to have its subscription office, 33 rue de Seine. Subscribers are humorously depicted rushing en masse through the doors and invading the premises with an enthusiasm and an eagerness somewhat exaggerated. A cutaway view of the second floor allows us to follow the crowd inside, to a room where collections of the newspaper are stored on high shelves.
The caption reads in the original French: Bureau d’abonnement de ‘L’Illustration.’

This illustration is also included in the article “L’Illustration, a Weekly Newspaper.”
