Harold (Hay) Gye, 1887-1967, was a cartoonist for many newspapers and magazines, including the Melbourne Herald, the Weekly Times (published in Victoria), Sporting Globe, Punch (Melbourne), and Table Talk. Some of his football cartoonist were published in a book called Football Fragments, published in 1921. Here are a few of my favourites from that book. You can look at the whole book online via the State Library of Victoria's website from this link: http://handle.slv.vic.gov.au/10381/182910
This advertisement is pretty incorrect by today's standards linking consumption of Whiskey with good and accurate goal kicking. I don't know if this was one of Gye's illustrations. It was just an advert in the Football Fragments book.
