This fun drawing of a brother and his two younger sisters features the boy using his sister’s dolly as a passenger in his toy sail boat. As the girl worries that her dolly is going to sink into the depths of the pond, the boy appears to be either trying to retrieve the boat of push it along in the water. This vintage image of naughty children would make a great addition to a scrapbook page featuring the ways young boys sometimes treat their sisters.
This vintage drawing and a number of others appeared in St. Nicholas Magazine for Boys and Girls, Vol. 5, September 1878, No. 11.
