French Saharan Adventures (Le Petit Journal 6)

Here are some more color covers; this time from Le Petit Journal illustré which was the weekly illustrated supplement to the daily newspaper Le Petit Journal.  These depict various scenes from the French colonial experience in the Sahara.  Some of these, such as those featuring the Tuaregs, appear to be over-painted photographs.  These came (mostly) from GalicaI just brightened them up a bit using GIMP.
