Ulster illustrator (1869-1955), best known for his humourous illustrations in Punch magazine. Good clear illustration, in black ink over pencil, roughly four inches by one and a half, on grubby and spotted piece of card, roughly eight inches by four and a half. Depicts head and shoulders of young girl in field, with rising sun behind, and cluster of foliage in circle around her and extending to right, where it entwines itself around the word 'YOUTH'. Morrow is known to have illustrated for Dent's series of 'World's Classics', and the piece may possibly have been used there, or for Joseph Conrad's story of the same name. Docketed in contemporary hand 'Original drawing by Geo Morrow. artist for Punch.'
