dc.description.abstract A man sitting in a balcony tells his wife that she shouldn't ever accept invitations to eat horse meat as he clutches his stomach in pain. he Veterinary Institute at Alfort, a suburb of Paris supported the consumption of horse meat. Official receptions were organized and horse meat was served at these occasions. Initially the consumer remained sceptical, as on can easily see from Daumier’s drawings. As of 1850, horse meat was served as a delicacy in fancy restaurants between Toulouse and Paris. Butcheries specialized in horse meat opened up and one can still today find them in France. Banquets were decorated with horseshoes, nails and bridle and the new trend reached its peak in doubtful taste by 1858. Similar to the series “Les bons bourgeois” the Croquis Parisiens are dealing with numerous small misfortunes in the life of the Parisians. They were especially impressed by the possibilities opened by the railroad. Travels to the surroundings and the French province were both exciting and startling experiences.
