Vintage illustration of two children playing together. Unable to decide who would push and who would swing, the children came up with this compromise as a way of sharing the fun. While one looks a bit unhappy with the outcome the other seems quite happy with this new way of swinging.
1890 Baby’s Annual Pictures and Stories for Little People supplied almost 100 wonderful images for Reusable Art. D. Lothrop Company filed the copyright in 1889 but since they did not identify an illustrator or author, the copyright held for 120 years. How lucky are we, that these vintage images are now in the public domain?
This image is copyright free and in the public domain anywhere that extends copyrights 70 years after death or at least 120 years after publication when the original illustrator is unknown.
