Three original pencil drawings, being 'facsimile illustrations' of his artwork in 'The Songs of a Sentimental Bloke', the 1915 book of verse by C.J. Dennis that became an instant classic

The illustrations, accompanying the poems 'The Intro', 'Doreen', and 'Hitched' in the book, are each drawn within a pencil border (approximately 130 × 100 mm) on larger sheets of paper. The title is written immediately below the image; at the foot of each sheet of paper the artist has written in pencil '"The Sentimental Bloke". Facsimile illustration - Hal Gye'. They are individually mounted behind glass in their original frames; on the backing paper, in Gye's hand, is pencilled 'Glover. Dec 2nd 1955 HG'. (This is possibly John Glover, the son of Charles Richmond John Glover, 1870-1936, Adelaide lord mayor, public benefactor, businessman and book collector. John Glover was also Lord Mayor of Adelaide, 1960-63).
