Further to my post of 25/8/17 about the 1930s/40s film posters found under carpets in the former home of a cinema manager, the auction of the posters took place today in Cardiff.
It was interesting to watch the bidding live.
The 1939 STAGE COACH poster sold for £31,000.
No other poster came any where near that sale.
SHERLOCK HOLMES sold for £13,000.
The BLACK FRIDAY poster went for £1000.
FOREIGN CORRESPONDENT – £900.
But most posters sold for prices between £60 and £500.
LITTLE OLD NEW YORK – £350.
RETURN OF FRANK JAMES – £250
ALGIERS – £550
Many sales were through Internet bidding.
Just read about it in the Guardian – mental wasn’t it? Glad those two builders cashed out for their retirement though 😊👍
Yep, the two builders did well!
