Chased By The Demon.

This is my cover version of part of a design for a Menu card by MMM. This was used for Kate Cranston's White Cockade Restaurant which was part of the Scottish National Exhibition 1911.
I can't do this graphic justice as I don't fully understand it. I can only hope that Margaret approves of what I have done.
The original design and full Menu card can Be seen here.

togoh, thank you for that! I went back to have a look at MMM's original and noticed that 'CCC' appears on the back as well as the front. I didn't (and possibly still don't) know what the CCC on the front was, or if indeed they were characters at all, (I didn't draw them as characters) but now think it could be 'Catherine Cranston's Cafes' or possibly 'Catherine Cranston Cochrane' after her married name. As I have stated before, this journey is full of mystery!
I fully appreciate my graphics skill as a gift, but do not in any way give it regard. My regard goes to those who have designed the graphics I simply copy. All I see is my mistakes.
