This is from the "you never know what you'll find at the museum" category. I was flipping through an autograph book from "Josie" who apparently moved from Rockford Minnesota to Hood River. There were a pair of spectacular pen and ink drawings from Albert Kingsley, dated 1883. Seems like a good Valentine's Day post.
Beautiful drawing. What amazes me is that everything is so precise and detailed. I love the little ladybugs in the lower middle. Good example of cursive writing and drawing I think. People of that era took great pride in penmanship.....I remember in my early school years of having penmanship practice on a very regular basis.

And who is Albert Kingsley?
Those look like potato bugs at the bottom of the drawing.
