Eulalie Banks Illustrator -- At The Seaside

When I was down beside the sea
A wooden spade they gave to me
To dig the sandy shore
My holes were empty like a cup
In every hold the sea came up,
Till it could come no more
(Robert Louis Stevenson's A Child's Garden of Verses, 1929)

Eulalie Banks (1895-1999) was an English-born writer, artist, illustrator and muralist who lived the majority of her long and creative life in California. She is best-known for the over fifty children's books that she illustrated, including several that she also authored.

Too bad this illustration is ruined with a watermark. Eulalie's illustrations are sacred.
