Top of the Mountain

— Ici c'est la route au fond de la vallée, et me voilà dans ma berline dont l'essieu se brise à vingt pas de ton châlet.
— Ce n'est pas vrai ; c'est le sommet de la montagne, puisque je viens de traire mes blanches brebis et que je cueille des fraises pour ton déjeuner.

Description

Two actresses are backstage contemplating the play and the scene they’re probably about to rehearse, trying to make up for the lack of scenery. This illustration is from the series “Les actrices.”
The caption reads:

“Here is the road at the bottom of the valley and I am in my berlin, whose axle breaks twenty steps away from your chalet.”
“It can’t be. This is the top of the mountain, as I have just milked my white ewes and I am picking strawberries for your lunch.”
