The Collection - 4
This latest set of artifacts for inclusion into 'The Collection' for your weekend entertainment. Starting at the club's centenary with this lovely cockerel. We will skim over the last hundred years and look at fans and their travel plans. We include the clubs financial side, some celebrations and we look inside the Directors Box and there are a few other curio's I think you might like.
This cheque comes from the thirties and we learn the club has paid its water bill with this glorious looking item.
Below left a set of commemorative plates. While to the right we find the prospectus from when the club was launched onto the stock market.
Not actually the photo I wanted. This sign use to stand at Liverpool Street Station. There is an image of Spurs supporters on the platform underneath but until that resurfaces please make do with this one.
Below right a set of turnstile weights from the thirties use to weigh the coins collected. Whilst to the left one of the old turnstiles from the old stadium.
Left - This silver mounted walking cane made from bamboo was presented to our longest serving club chairman Mr C D Roberts by the players.
Right - Tickets for the directors box.
Above Left and a Monday afternoon for this Cup Semi Final in 1921. Sorry to say we went down 1-2.
Right - Its a Thursday in 1933 and the lads turn out for a cricket match at Alexandra Park.
Left - Last season we looked at Spurs during the Festival of Britain. After the game we played with Scunthorpe both teams and local dignitaries held a dinner to mark the event.
Below left - Coming more up to date judging by the shirt. A Toby Jug from the Royal Dalton pottery. Any suggestions as to to who is depicted ?
right - Train travel in 1937
Last in this set we fin another of the memorial cards that were so popular during the Edwardian era. Having knocked out Plymouth with seven goals and Chelsea we fell at Swindon 2-3.
