This is the original Gouache painting by Geoff Squire.

Norman buys up all the food from "Gnome's Own Stores" presumably a play on British Home Stores which would have been a major force on the high street when this comic was published, now mainly defunct.

From the story Norman Gnome Gets Rich which appeared in Playhour 1959. This panel is rich with charming comic detail. Originally the final panel of page two, part two of the story.
