El nino y un cerdo

Origin: Foto Library of Congress, Washington, DC. Date: Unknown

Purpose: To show, in the form of a picture, how the pig has grown a lot while the boy had not grown at all.

Value: The young boy is seen making fun of the piglet in the thought bubble because at the time the boy was much bigger than the pig. However, with time things had changed. The boy is now much smaller than the pig.

Limitations: A date was not written with the cartoon which makes it a little hard to figure out what time period the cartoon is talking about. However, this is a relative small limitation.

What does "el nino" and "el cerdo" represent? What conflict is the cartoon referring to?
