Scope and Content

Original illustration by Dorothy Craigie for page 15 of 'The Little Train'. Executed in gouache and pencil, on board. The board is marked with registration marks for printing, and is numbered '3' in the bottom-left corner.

A thin paper overlay is taped to the board, marked with curved pencil lines which may indicate where the text for that page could be positioned, although these lines do not match where the text is positioned in the printed book. The overlay is heavily stained with blue watercolour, and bears significant tears and creasing.
