Three Further Gems by Chuck Jones, ... a beautiful children's book illustration by my all-time favorite artist Jos Danilowatz (1877-1945), showing the square in front of Vienna's State Opera in the mid 1920s and the city's traffic situation from that period. It could easily be a production layout from Disney's 101 Dalmatians, couldn't it?
