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.
Starting with this lovely bus.
Then right this comes under the 'odd but brill' heading but thanks to our Norwegian readers.
Another item that the readership seems to enjoy are the quotes that sneak in especially if they have come out wrong. As this one did from Martin Jol... "Robbie Keane's not the second choice he is my first choice, But Jermain Defoe is as well."
Whilst the car parking space is...It seems that the pupils at a High School in Texas are allowed to decorate their space. So full marks both to the school and the lad involved. Staying with the true or false theme a moment....
This season we have included some postal offerings and this time around this set nearly qualifies. Gugh Island is off the Cornish coast and the other two are islands off Scotland, (I had to look those two up). They are actually known as locals and don't carry any value when entering the Royal Mail system. They are sold locally to tourists and the money goes to the local councils who probably use the money to counter the damage done by tourists! Any philatelist's out there?
Medals make a regular appearance in Talking Tottenham and other articles such as 'The Collection.' These both come from Jimmy Skinner. The first is as a schoolboy at Manor Road school,West Ham. The other is a winners medal from the Evening News Cricket Cup (1926). Skinner scored 104 as Spurs totaled 258 and then bowled Chelsea out for 110.
Something that didn't make our Cover Stories was this 'tasteful' front page from the Daily Mirror and was before the Germany / England game at the '96 Euros.
Featuring on the right our own (then Rangers) Paul Gascoigne.
Talking of reading matter I was looking for something different and was delighted to come across this, below left.
But it gives me a reason to slip in (right) this work of fiction by El, Tel, Terry Venables.
Two regular's in Talking Tottenham are 'stars and cars' where we normally feature racy type vehicles but this time its a slightly slower pace. And Programmes having recently looked at 'Christmas' covers here is another one where some of our lads have been cast into the pantomime. This was a 3-0 win over Nottingham Forest, Jan 1938.
One subject we haven't covered is banners and flags, still not convinced about that but in the meantime this is from 1981 and our cup final exploits.
Many thanks again to everyone, including some very old friends who send in their comments (with or without pics). Ta to Tottenham George for the use of the bus. I'll close this assortment with a chirpy.
