The Three Basketeers
Last time we discussed about the beloved fairytale of Little Red Riding Hood. Today we shall also discuss a well known story, this time a newer one by Alexandre Dumas - The Three Musketeers (Les Trois Mousquetaires).
In the original story, the three inseparable brave lads (Athos, Porthos, and Aramis) were the personal guards of the French monarch.
In Dublin, however, the story is about three girls who have all got a marvellous basket fixed to their bikes.
And if you look carefully, at the bottom-left corner you will notice another wheel, which belongs to the Irish D'Artagnan. She also had a basket...
