As we see out the old year and ring in the new over a Spurs-less weekend a change of pace again. Some people enjoyed the 'olde' football pictures I used at different times so I felt you might like to take a moment and cast your eye over some old pics from the photo labyrinth in this "Every Picture" special. Only one has a Spurs link but I think your enjoy the set.
Len Duquemin, who scored the goal that secured Tottenham their first League title in 1951 stands seventh in Tottenham’s all time scorers list.
He scored a total of 134 goals in his career in 308 games (including one abandoned match), including three hat tricks.
He was also the first Spur to score twenty goals for the club in the FA Cup. A major contributor to Arthur Rowe's Championship winning side and a man with a remarkable story.
Every Picture - Set 26
Another set of great pictures from the World of Hotspur. Hopefully some will be new to you and the rest are still worth a look. As we try and uncover ones not spattered across the social media.
Thanks for the many comments on the series and the pics sent in for inclusion.
The Lane - 10
We continue our series that first ran last season on social media so successfully and is now re-imagined in an article format.
We salute White Hart Lane and its part in our glorious history as we reach January the cup competition's kick in and records and milestones come thick and fast.
We also welcome our first overseas visitors to The Lane.
The Art of Tottenham - 9
The Art of Tottenham where we look at how the artist / cartoonist has seen Spurs over the years. From the serious to the silly. I'm sure you will enjoy a quick wander through this latest collection of works.
A tottenham Christmas - V
Its Christmas time again and this years special finds us running low on Christmas tales but I've dug out a great story that wont happen again. Along with some more wonderful images from Spurs across the years that I hope your like. A massive thanks to everyone who has chipped in comments, pics and whatever's during the year. To everyone who is celebrating have a wonderful Lilywhite Christmas and to all a happy and glorious new year.
Every Picture - Set 25
A series that started off as a short run but came back by public demand reaches twenty five. Thanks for your comments and the pics you sent in.
Every Picture gathers some Spurs pictures from across the years which you might not have seen before or at least are worth another look.
This Tottenham Mystery addresses one of the enduring myths that surrounds the club and its early days, and possibly lays it to rest as we also explore how it may of become corrupted over the years.
We have all read that our Chairman, Charles Roberts was a pitcher for the Brooklyn Dodgers baseball team and many believe it as they have heard the statement being repeated ad nauseam but do we have any evidence to support it.
Talking Tottenham - the 10th Ad Break
See Spurs play in Europe and travel by steam launch.
Just one of the great offers in the latest Ad Break. This time around as the year closes we are having a wallow in nostalgia, there's three managers and a catch up with a current first teamer.
Gallery - A Final Impression
In the 'Gallery' where we draw together a series of related images this time as we enter the festive period this set looks back at St Georges Day 1921. Drawn from newsreels and newspapers and coming from a private collection I was granted access to (1). I'm sure you find these interesting as we look back at when Tottenham became the first London club in 20 years to win the FA Cup since we had won it in 1901.

Box Of Delights - Reopened
Welcome to another Talking Tottenham compendium where we find images and some slightly frivolous information to help pass your Sunday. I try and include as many of the 'odd' pictures that you the reader send in and thank you all, alongside some of the more traditional TT subjects.
Planet Spurs - 13
Planet Spurs where we try and find a few stories that otherwise slip past you. This time around the 'Law story' involves the famous Blind Beggar gang.
There is a fashion show, a carnival and the future of football on TV. Not to mention another team picture you havent seen before.
The Christmas Programme
With the longest night rapidly approaching and today being the last home game before Christmas I thought we would take a look at some of the festive offerings from the club on the cover of the programmes over the years.
So whilst we await this years cover a short diversion and some memories to reflect upon.
The Collection - 3
Another look at some of the treasures, great and small, that Tottenham have gathered over the years. This time the artifacts come from the start of the last century through the war years to the recent past.
They have been gathered from across this country and from the far side of the globe.
Starting with the engraved goblet that was presented by the club to each player to celebrate the Double and carries their autographs.
Every Picture - Set 24
A short diversion for the weekend and the latest set of Every Picture I am quite confident contains some that will be new to you, but they are all well worth another look.
Thank you again to those who sent in some of these treasures to add to the maze in the photo files .

The Chesterfield Tough
George Hunt stands sixth in Tottenham’s all time goal scorers list, is second on the hat tricks chart as well as having the second best strike ratio in our history.
Our England international, George struck 138 goals for Spurs in just 198 games, was our top scorer five seasons running including the year we won promotion, and was the top all time scorer for twenty five years.
The Art of Tottenham - 8
Welcome to the latest set of artist impressions of Tottenham collected together for you pleasure. I've given what information I have on these images, if anyone can throw more light on them please contact me. They range from recent computised creations to the press coverage over the years. 'The Art' will return in a coupe of weeks.
This top pic is the magic man himself. Its by someone called Owen. I don't know if that's is a first or last name. So attempts to track him down have been unsuccessful.
Madonna, Kylie and Gazza, what a way to kick off the latest collection of cover stories as we seek out Spurs and where they have turned up on the news-stands over the years. Gazza took time out from his footy to have a record career (see The Tottenham Juke Box) and here appears on the front cover of Smash Hits magazine. As we look back over eighty years and uncover some unexpected titles.
Hotspur Towers - Jurgen Klinsmann
Jurgen Klinsmann arrived at Spurs in July 1994 in a hail of publicity, having been signed by Alan Sugar on his yacht in the south of France. This was followed by the press whipping up a story that he dived in matches. His abilities, his enthusiasm for the game and charm quickly won the fans of all clubs over as he set out to ridicule the rumours and asking reporters where he could find a diving club.
Hotspur Towers - Woolwich 1910
This day, 3rd December, in 1910 Tottenham registered their first Football League win over Woolwich at the third attempt. We look at how the press of the day recorded the match.
The London News led with the story of ‘A more entertaining match than that in which Tottenham Hotspur beat Woolwich Arsenal by three goals to one has not been seen at White Hart Lane this season.’
A story originally penciled in for last season when we looked at great games at White Hart Lane.
