Water Mill

This charming black and white water mill drawing is from a book about Hungarian folktales published in 1907. It was written by Desi Malonyai (1866-1916), a Hungarian writer and art historian. There was not an illustrator identified. Gutenberg says it is in the public domain in the United States. I think, repeat I think, based on his date of death (over 70 years ago), the work is in the public domain everywhere.

The drawing depicts a country water mill at the end of a cart path. Rolling hills and some trees add some background interest. This vintage illustration would work nicely for a coloring page too.
