Scope and Content

Original illustration by Dorothy Craigie for page 1 of 'The Little Train'. Executed in gouache, pen and ink and pencil, on board. The board is marked with registration marks for printing and is numbered '2' in the bottom-left corner.

A thin paper overlay is taped to the board, annotated with what appear to be brief sizing instructions, and horizontal pencil lines which indicate where the text for that page should be positioned. This overlay is damaged, bearing significant tears and creasing.
