The Art of Tottenham - 6
Welcome to another set of artistic interpretations of Tottenham over the years. Once again I've tried to identify the artist where possible. Thanks to all the wonderful artists for their use. Anyone able to shed some more light on any of the images please do so. There are a couple I think I know who the artist is and apologies if I've got that wrong.
First up and this top pic is (almost certainly) David Squires who draws for the Guardian. Harry Redknapp of course, I suspect from the time of his trial as Buster the dog is featured.
This is a newspaper cartoon from 20th March 1920.
That day we played Rotherham at home and won 2-0. We then beat West Ham in midweek before playing Rotherham again away and a 1-1 draw as Spurs ran away with the Second Division title that season while the Yorkshire side finished 17th.
Below Left - Jimmy Greaves and is signed Khalid.
Center - Jimmy Seed, and Left Spurs V Everton. another from the Gallagher Cigarette card series (so quite likely) 1927.
This was sent in by reader after a similar one appeared again the 'super hero' shirt look.
Below left - Brazil nuts craved to look like English players from just before the World Cup 2014. I can tell you from left to right that's Rooney, Beckham, Lineker, Shearer and Gascoigne.
Sorry don't know the artist or how many nuts he used before he got it right.
Above center - a wood cutting which a reader sent in ages ago.
Right- This cockerel was presented by the club to Capel Manor College which stands close to the training ground. The artist is Ivor Abraham and was first shown at the Royal Academy. It stands around ten feet tall.
Next up this cartoon from the People newspaper in March 1914. As you can tell from the caption it was a goalless draw.
This arrived when I was producing the White Hart Lane series last season. I don't remember seeing this before its by Stuart Herd from 2006.
There is still an old oil painting of WHL from a similar angle, a little higher out there somewhere so keeping looking. Thanks again to those lovely readers who not only send in their thoughts but manage to dig up these gems.
A change of pace again and some more 'modern' art. On the right we have a Tottenham Angel by Zelda, again thank for permission to use. The other two, don't even know if they are by the same artist. But two rather clever images,
Another 'sent in' and another charity art autograph. I would not have guessed but its David Ginola.
