Such a fun drawing. Daddy allows a group of kids to tie rope to his feet and drag him like a sled. A little girl has the privilege of riding on her Daddy’s chest. The entire drawing includes a small cottage, some animals and other people watching the children playing. I think it would make a cuter image if you cropped out just the kids playing.
So many wonderful vintage images on Reusable art are from this wonderful children’s magazine. This edition of Harper’s Young People was released on January 6, 1880.
