A young boy does some last minute cramming while walking to school with his sister. We’ve all crammed at the last minute for a test. This image of a child studying is timeless for it’s subject matter but has the wonderfully vintage charm from the period clothing the two children are wearing.
This illustration and a number of others comes from the 1880 children’s book Afternoon Tea. It was written by J.G. Sowerby and published by McLoughlin Bros., Inc.
