A 2 3/4" x 200" scroll picture story created by a young boy.  Created in a naive hand black crayon.  References to Chelsea (MA). The events of a young boy's real or imaginary daily life.   It begins with scenes of perhaps a school or common building, a pound with geese and swans and a home, followed by a bull in a field, a paddle boat and sailboat in water nearby.  This is followed by a scene of the horse drawn Chelsea laundry wagon and a battalion of firefighters pulling pump No. 1 to a burning house.   This is followed by a column or section marker and random animals and people.  The boy's next experience is a train with an arch reading "Look Out for Engine", another scene of the Chelsea Laundry wagon, this time on a bridge and going in the opposite direction with an approaching rider, perhaps a soldier  on a horse and a drawbridge in the background ending with a parade of soldiers followed by a cannon; Another section break.  A military vessel, sailboat and a lighthouse a ship and a vessel..
