Original illustration by Dorothy Craigie for page 13 of 'The Little Train'. Executed in gouache, pen and ink and pencil, on board. The text for this page has been written in position on the illustration in pencil. The board is marked with registration marks and dimensions for printing, and is numbered '2' in the bottom-left corner. In addition, a pencil number '13' appears in the top-left corner of the board.
An unmarked paper overlay was originally taped to the board. This overlay was removed by the Seven Stories conservator to allow the artwork to be mounted and framed for an exhibition, but the overlay has been retained with the artwork in the file. This overlay is damaged, bearing minor tears and creases.
