An original 1957 pen & ink drawing, Jean Creswell Doctor, East Anglian Magazine.
A characterful pen and ink illustration. The drawing was reproduced in a February 1957 edition of East Anglian Magazine, illustrating a humorous doctor-patient encounter: "I eats well and I sleeps well. But when I see a little bit of work coming along I'm all of a tremble."
There are two horizontal fold creases across the paper, which do not detract from the image.
13.7cm x 12.8cm.
