Searle Illustrates Dickens

These illustrations, by Ronald Searle, from a 1961 edition of A Christmas Carol informed much of my psychic Christmas landscape, and it was this Scrooge (with a bit of Alistair Sim) and Spirits that populated my imagination when I read, or heard read, the Dickens seasonal classic.

So when I saw Neddie and Lance making free use of passages from a text I well know and love, I was moved to the scanner, by way of illustrating the points they make so much better than I might do.
