The Posters and other Film memorabilia in this sale are from the collection of William Clavery.


As a Schoolboy and Young Man, William worked at the various cinemas in South Shields where he  lived, and, seeing that many posters were simply discarded after the Film’s run ended, he decided to save the majority of Posters in the collection from being thrown away!


The Vast majority of the Posters in the collection are UK Quads from the late 1950s to the early 1970s which William kept carefully folded, then as time went by, had them rolled and preserved In brown paper and put in polythene sleeves.


This has meant that the condition of the majority of the posters is quite extraordinary and it is highly likely that, in terms of quality and rarity there has never been such a collection come to auction in this country


Alongside the Posters, William collected Lobby Cards / Front of House Stills and Press Books, again, mainly from his work at the time and with some collected later in his life.
