Title

Pied Piper Playing for the Children

Description

From its earliest days until the twentieth century, McLoughlin Brothers published many editions of the traditional rhymes of Mother Goose, often reusing artwork from edition to edition. The original watercolors for Mother Goose were kept on file and were in constant use by the firm. This watercolor composition of the Pied Piper was copied from a competitor and was in use by McLoughlin Brothers repeatedly between 1870 and 1880.
