Black and white drawing of two children and a dog keeping dry under and umbrella. The little boy in this vintage image reminds me of a little schoolboy wearing his uniform. It’s hard to tell, but maybe he has his shoes in his lap to protect them. The little girl, presumably his sister, looks like a little kewpie doll with her crochet scarf wrapped around her head. The pet dog, which is as large as they are, joins the children under a torn umbrella. None of the three looks very happy as the sit on the side of a trail under a tree. More so than anything else, this is a wonderful drawing that represents the concept of sharing.
