Description: Fine impression, showing the impress of the stone, on white wove paper with good margins. The scene shows a group of young schoolboys, examinging and admiring a pair of mounted horseguards in armor so highly polished that it reflects a view of the street. The title is less derogatory than it seems, as "crapaud" is also common slang for "urchin."
