Original illustration by Dorothy Craigie for page 7 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 '1' in the bottom-left corner. In addition, a pencil number '7' appears in the top-left corner of the board.
A thin paper overlay is taped to the board, marked with horizontal pencil lines which indicate where the text for that page should be positioned. The overlay is damaged, bearing significant tears and creasing.
