Scope and Content

Pencil sketches and line drawings all apparently executed by Elinor Lyon in her youth. The file includes pencil sketches of heads and figures; pencil sketches of ships and seascapes; one landscape experiment in collage; one sheet of decorated initials; two pen and ink silhouette drawings of Christmas scenes, which appear to have been Christmas cards for her mother and father, being addressed on the reverse 'Mummy from Enna' and 'Daddy from Enna'; and a series of small cards featuring black and white pen and ink line drawings, with watercolour accents, featuring angels, landscapes and seascapes. These small cards are numbered, although the numbering sequence is incomplete suggesting some are missing; it is possible that they were produced to illustrate a story.
