Original illustration by Dorothy Craigie for page 23 of 'The Little Train'. Executed in gouache and pencil, on board. The board is marked with registration marks for printing. Tape and paper residue running along the top edge of the reverse of the board suggests that an overlay may originally have been attached to this illustration, but has since been lost.
At some point, this board has suffered from damp, and significant damage has been done to the top-left corner of the illustration.
