Happy Chinese New Year

As it's Chinese New Year, I had a look to see what Chinese images I could find.

These sweet little illustrations come from a 1910 American book entitled a Chinese Child's Day.












As usual for a book of this age, what is now considered to be political incorrectness abounds!

The book is one of music and lyrics and includes a song called 'The Velly Good Dragon' - dear oh dear!

Oh, I nearly forgot to say, these pictures are by a lady called Albertine Randall Wheelan (1863-1954).
