This is the unique original Pen & Ink Wash by Ron Embleton.

This is the original artwork from Look and Learn no. 458, 24th October 1970, from a feature entitled "The Truth Behind The Legend: Dick Whittington - Lord Mayor of London".

Sir Richard Whittington (1354-1423) was a merchant and politician who was also the real-life inspiration behind the pantomime character, Dick Whittington. He bequeathed his fortune to form the Charity of Sir Richard Whittington (founded 1424), which still operates in 21st Century Britain. Sir Richard was Lord Mayor of London four times (1397, 1398, 1406 and 1419).

This illustration shows two scenes from Sir Richard's life, firstly, his position as a scullery boy when he first came to London, and secondly, his successful cloth business.
