George Morrow Cartoons from Punch magazine

["Curious stories come to light occasionally of men who are 'something in the City,' but who conceal from their wives and families the true nature of their humble occupations." - Daily Paper.] Who would imagine that this apparently decrepit specimen of the submerged tenth could be no other than Mr --, the most famous amateur on the Lurbiton Links, whose week-end performances draw crowds from the remotest suburbs? Mr -- , of Streatham had an anxious moment some days ago at his place of business. A gentleman of East Sheen finds some difficulty in preventing his family from knowing that he acts as a porter at Billingsgate. A secret chimney sweep, who lives at Raynes Park, cleaing his home at daybreak. The wife and daughter of Mr --, of Golder's Green, know nothing of his employment but that he goes to the city daily to attend board meetings - and, in a sense, this is true.
