Title Grande Classe
Creator (Local)
  • Lavrate, Edmond
Description This is a political caricature related to the Franco-Prussian War of 1870 or the Paris Commune of 1871. Within illus.: History of the beautiful Helena. Grande Classe. Caption: "L'Inspecteur -Oui jeunes gens, l'eleve qui dirige l'esquif de sa conduite à l'aide du gouvernail de l'étude, arrive toujours au port de la gloire! L'Instituteur -C'est ce que je leur dis toujours, Mr. l'inspecteur. L'éducation est la bielle de l'esprit, c'est la locomotive du progres, qui fait sortir l'homme, à toute voyeur, du tunnel de l'ignorance, et le transporte sur le viaduc de la fortune, pour le déposer à la gare des honneurs. L'honorable insigne qui brille sur votre poitrine en est une preuve. Non, on n'a pas supprimé comme on le disait, les croix dans les écoles! On les a changais de place, voilà tout!..." Caption (English translation): "The Inspector-Yes young people, the student who steers the skiff of his conduct with the help of the rudder of study, arrives always at the port of glory. The teacher-That is what I always tell them, Mr. Inspector. Education is the connecting rod of the spirit, it is the motor of progress that makes a man come out at full speed from the tunnel of ignorance, and transports him on the viaduct of fortune that leads to the station of honors. The honorable badge that shines on your chest is proof of it. No, we did not remove the crosses in the schools as they said just moved to another location, that's all!"
