Original illustration by Dorothy Craigie for page 14 of 'The Little Train'. Executed in gouache and pencil, on board. 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 '14' appears in the top-right corner. Three horizontal pencil lines have been drawn onto the board, possibly indicating positions for text.
A thin paper overlay was originally taped to the board, marked with horizontal pencil lines which indicate where the text for that page should be positioned. 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.
