    Description

    Peter Fonda Hand-Drawn Picture, Age 8, 1948. Most of the sketches Peter Fonda drew for his father were war combat scenes. This one departed from the usual motif. This picture drawn by eight-year-old Peter on a piece of 5"x 8" paper shows a bright sun, what appears to be a steam shovel, and -- prophetically from the future star of Easy Rider -- what indeed resembles a motorcycle, leaving a big trail of smoke, making a sound (the word "Weeeeee" emanates from it), and driven by a man wearing a hat. There appears to be musical notes rising above the vehicle (Peter was taking music lessons at the time) and there's a dark cloud with the words "Boom" and "Bam" surrounding it. Dated January 24, 1948, only weeks before Henry Fonda triumphed on Broadway as Mr. Roberts. In Excellent condition.
