Scope and Content

A bundle of drawings and paintings, many of which were made by Derbyshire at school when she was eleven years old. These include some abstract watercolour designs, a watercolour nativity scene, pencil sketches of figures, sketches possibly intended for embroidery designs, a design of a house made out of pieces of fabric mounted on paper, and sketches for Christmas cards. /14 is a sketched cartoon (mechanically reproduced rather than original); and /15 is a drawing book containing pressed flowers, with captions indicating that they were picked in Scotland in August 1951.
