The Old Picture Book.

The Old Picture Book is a memo found in Silent Hill 4: The Room in Room 302 of the Past. A portion of the memo can also be found in the beginning of the game on the coffee table. The memo refers to Walter Sullivan's obsession with his mother and Room 302. It even goes as far to mention Dahlia Gillespie's deception. 


There once was a baby and a mother
who were connected by a magical cord.
But one day the cord was cut, and
the mother went to sleep.
The baby was left all alone.

But the baby made lots of friends
at Wish House, and everyone was
very nice to him.
The baby was happy.

His friends told him how to
wake up his mother.
So the baby went right away
to go and wake her up.
But the mother wouldn't wake up.
No matter how he tried,
she wouldn't wake up.

Because the one that he was
trying to wake up was actually
the Devil.
The baby had been deceived.
Poor baby.

The baby cried and cried and cried.
When he thought of the mother,
he remembered the feelings of being
connected to her through the magical

Just then, a ray of light came down
from the sky.
The light was very warm and made
the baby feel good.
When the baby looked into his hand,
he saw that the magical cord was lying

With the cord clutched in his hand,
the baby went happily to sleep.
