English: "Paris in half-mourning" by American cartoonist and illustrator Ralph Barton (1891-1931). Published in "Puck", v. 78 (1915 Nov. 6), p. 12-13. Caption: "Dear Puck — Here is a picture of most any corner in the Paris that some of our contemporaries insist is in a state of manless, pleasureless melancholy during the war. It is true that a greater percentage of the men are dressed in blue and red and yellow and — uniforms. It is true that the cafes close at ten-thirty, that we have to spend paper money instead of golden louis, that the Amer Picon is running low and that women are forbidden to smoke on the Terrasses of the cafes; but outside of that Paris wears an expression of the most cheerful optimism. Rabat-joie as the war is, it can't make Paris quit smiling. If she is in half-mourning the mourning half keeps pretty well hidden. À Toi — Ralph Barton. Painted in Paris by Ralph Barton, especially for Puck."
