A postcard from album presumably assembled by Gill herself, with small-format works showing Gill experimenting with different mark-making techniques. It depicts two faces markedly distinct from the other faces seen in Gill's work. One girl in a large hat is showing neck and loose hair. The second face, largely obscured with over-drawing, looks more familiar with wide eyes and hair covering. Both faces appear bright and open, if not fully smiling.
