|A season ticket issued to a Monsieur Mangeot, allowing him to come and go tous les jours et par toutes les portes [every day and by every gate] during the Exposition Universelle of 1878.
The pass incorporates, or rather, is adapted from, a carte-de-visite portrait of the holder, which would have prevented the pass being lent, rented or sold to anyone else.
Photographer presumably identified by his backplate, but this is obscured by the pass pasted onto the reverse of the mount.
condition: Some foxing, and a heavy vertical crease going across the sitter's face.
