Bob Cratchit and Tiny Tim. Harold Copping. 1924. Color lithography
‘And how did little Tim behave?’ asked Mrs. Cratchit.
‘As good as gold,’ said Bob, ‘and better. Somehow he gets thoughtful sitting by himself so much, and thinks the strongest things you ever heard. He told me, coming home, that he hoped the people saw him in the church, because he was a cripple, and it might be pleasant to them to remember upon Christmas Day, who made the lame beggars walk and the blind men see.”
Taken from A Christmas Carol, written by Charles Dickens first published on December, 17 1843
