Original illustration by Dorothy Craigie for page 3 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, marked with a pencil curve which indicates where the text for that page should be positioned. The overlay is damaged, bearing significant tears and creasing.
