Artwork by Doro.

That's great. It's almost a book cover. Did she do much other art?

I don't know. I suppose she must have done. You don't get skilled without practice. But there's not very much in the archive; just a few pieces like this- cards, business cards- that sort of thing.

I didn't realize wearing jodhpurs was an integral part of country life then.

Judging by the photos I have it seems to have been standard wear for female farm hands.

A poultry farm! That's great!
And Doro was quite and artist. Her Christmas card tells a story with few words.
Wonderful visual testimony!

Her style is very deco. Reminds me of Clarice Cliff.
