Cute drawing of a little boy in a suit holding a larger-than-life writing tool. I’m not sure what the writing tool is but since this picture was used in a vintage children’s book to introduce the list of illustrations, I’ve assumed that he is actually holding something related to drawing and painting. Regardless of what he’s holding, his little button-down suit and serious expression are just so darn cute.A little girl struggles to get her umbrella open in this charming vintage image. With her dolly on her shoulder, the little girl uses both hands to try to open the umbrella and keep from getting wet from the rain.
