The Art of Tottenham - 13
The next set of art works depicting Tottenham over the ages and this time we start in the now before traveling back more than a hundred years to sample the works of professional and enthusiast alike. As we embrace both the conventional and the more 'modern' styles of saluting the club.
Right - Our Dutch master Edgar Davids.
Below Left - This is from the First World War and shows Spurs meeting Arsenal January 1918 and Spurs won 4-1 and 'possibly' this appeared in the News of The World.
Right - Even earlier and this shows action from the 1901 Cup Final and Spurs defending V Sheffield United.
Below another from the pen of Tom Webster who we have featured during this series, however the details of this cartoon elude me. Fanny Walden is featured which would make it earlier than the others we have shown, sometime in the 20's
Left - Several years ago a large blue cockerel was displayed in Trafalgar Square and we featured at the time.
Since then the piece has been shown around the globe.
Above left - Jimmy Greaves,
Center - Ossie Ardiles
Right - Former Director T. A Deacock drawn here by Jos Walker who did much of our programmes art work, this from 1930.
Left - This is from the Rover Comic February 1949
Below - The Lancashire Evening News and we have the paper before and the 1901 FA Cup campaign. This one shows the teams rushing towards the first round.
Footballers contracts oblige them to undertake various duties and here we see Winks and Wanyama pointing at Graffiti during the clubs last visit to Australia. While left another picture of the White Hart Lane this one appears to be dated 1920.
