‘Home Again’ shows four children waving to a train of triumphant soldiers returning from their victory in South Africa at the Relief of Mafeking, May 1900. This is reminiscent of Edith Nesbit’s classic children’s story ‘The Railway Children’, which was published 5 years later in ‘The London Magazine’ January 1905. From the late 1890s until 1901-2 the Elsleys took their holiday in West Milton a few miles inland from Bridport on the Devon Coast. This work was probably conceived on one of these vacations.
