Vintage drawing of a garden gate from a public domain children’s book. Which side of the gate do you think the drawing is? Seems like the perspective is from inside the garden looking out onto a meadow in the background. With stone columns, iron bars and a lock, this garden gate stands ready to keep out virtually any invader – well, at least those invaders too big to squeeze through the bars.
My First Picture Book may not have been the first vintage book of vintage illustrations that I’ve found but it did include a number of nice images by the artist Joseph Martin Kronheim (1810-1896).
