French Colonial Adventures (La Petit Parisian 3)

Here are some more pictures from the journal La Petit Parisian that depict various scenes from the French colonial outposts in Africa and Indochina.  Most of these are from 1889 to 1912 and were found on Galica.  I played around with the brightness and contrast on the colored illustrations to make them a bit more vivid.  There are also some more covers from the Petite Journal–a magazine very similar with full illustrations on the front and pack covers and I’ll try to post those next.
