A child look down at its blackened hands in amazement. Two small hand prints mar the clean stove digging a bigger hole of trouble for this little one caught in the act of being naughty. Another great black and white vintage image to use with your scrapbook pages, mixed media art, collages or any other creative works where you need an image of naughty children.
The Peep-Show: Amusement and Instruction for the Young featured a nice selection of vintage images. Since the book was published over 120 years ago and the folks who published the book – Strahan & Company of London, did not identify an illustrator – this drawing 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.
