Vintage Autumn Illustrations

I've picked out some more images from my old German A-Z picture book, 'Mein Erster Brockhaus', this time with an Autumn theme. No doubt, if you've got kids, you've been hunting for conkers or better still, for sweet chestnuts that you can actually eat. And those of you lucky enough, will be picking apples from your tree and making delicious puddings with them.

Some of the things in this book, just wouldn't be included in a kids A-Z picture book these days, like the hunter below with a gun. I find it funny looking through the book and finding 'graveyard, devil, gun, whip, penknife, cigar, cigarette, pipe and matches. But they're amongst lots of sweet stuff too!
