A Talking Tottenham special. We have been celebrating White Hart Lane all season and this time we see the ground through the eyes of the artists.
So if you have a few moments to take a short diversion please join us.
Once again I've enclosed what very little I know about these images. Some I collected along the way, A number have been passed on. So thank you to both the artists and the corespondents.
Anyone who may have any info on these do please send it in.
I do have some more similar pictures tucked away somewhere in the labyrinth I call a filing system. The various aspects I cover in 'Talking' do tend to attract images from the readership and if you have any more please do contact me.
I'm sure I remember a 'proper' oil painting of The Lane on match day from a fair few years back, which I'd like to include.
This one is from Parker Payne who I first mentioned back in the early articles and since then I see the club have commissioned some of his work in the club shop, so somebody must read this! He does a number of clubs with this 'period feel.'
Below another fabulous view of the old buildings guarding the entrance to the ground.
As I mentioned in the previous The Art of Tottenham in recent years pieces have appeared copied from photos from the black and white era.
This is another of those given a new lease of life.
The 50's game V Wolves sees Bennett, Duquemin and Walters turning away after a Tottenham goal.
This more recent picture showing the stadium from just before the new development started.
I like this next one from the north-west corner showing the old shelf and Park Lane.
Possibly because you can see where I stood for so many hours.
I saw this for the first time in the '60's as I remembered the tale of the Beverly Sisters (a singing group). One of them was married to the Arsenal skipper and they sat in the Directors Box at WHL in bright red coals and some fans were unimpressed.
I can tell you this is from the pen of Brian Casey, but nothing else, sorry.
