Victorian Children's Book Illustration

This illustration is an example of the beautiful illustrations from Abroad, A Victorian Excursion to the Continent by Thomas Crane & Ellen Houghton.
It's a story about a Victorian family's first trip abroad to Northern France and Paris. The children, Nellie, May, Rose, Dennis and little Bertie experience many new sights including this Paris market.
I love the colors and the subject matter. A classic.
