Public domain, black and white drawing of a man wearing a shabby top hat. Along with the hat, this fellow is wearing a pair of patched knickers and hose and a waist coat. His apparel looks a bit tattered and worn as he stands with his hands in his pockets as if waiting for someone.
This is another of those wonderful children’s books which provided a bunch of great vintage images for Reusable Art. National Rhymes of the Nursery did not include a publication date, but the artist was Gordon Browne (1858-1932) and his work is 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.
