STARR WOOD (1870-1944) SIGNED ORIGINAL PENCIL, PEN, BLACK INK GAG CARTOON, “S.W” monogram, 10 x 12.5, on heavy card stock, by 19th-early 20th century British Punch cartoonist. This cartoon shows older man telling older woman her house is on fire. Wood's handwritten caption (the publisher would later set it in type) reads: “Hi, your house is on fire!” “What? I’m a little deaf.” “I say your house is on fire.” “Is that all?” “Well it’s all I can think of at the moment.” There are a few publisher/printer notations in pencil, general age toning, a few minor stains, four pin holes, otherwise in fine condition.
STARR WOOD turned freelance cartoonist after his first drawing was published in 1892. In addition to his Punch cartoons he contributed to several other British publications, including: Chums, Fun, Judy, Chips, Parade, John Bull, Bystander, Humorist, Passing Show, Tatler and Strand from 1898-1938.
