Michael and Mary,Harvest Holiday

A scene from the short story Harvest Holiday (around 1946) which contains 19 pictures by Lunt Roberts, one a colour frontispiece. It is the sequel to Trouble at Townsend depicting a second visit to the farm a year later. Mary is map-reading. The Scottie dog is Dougal. Here I have used water colours to enhance local scenery.

Mary and Michael are joined by their townie friends Elizabeth (Liza) and John who arrive in their best blazers and overcoats and a suitcase weighing a ton. On the way home from the station, here they are admiring the tractor and binder.

Here is the next, faded out and waiting for colour.
