Tour de France - Soup De Tour

This drawing is based on a photo of  Robert Jacquinot - supping on soup in Hostens in the 1922 Tour de  France. There is a suggestion that the bicycle has availed itself of a little wine while Jacquinot, a double stage winner, spoons in.  The original photo is in the excellent 'Le Tour' edited by Jeremy Whittle & published by Collins Press 2003. The photos, this one included, are largely unattributed with a credits going to Offside Sports Photography. It would have been good to have identified the photographer - who catches a  great moment here with the muddy Jacquinot oblivious to his audience of one.
