Original John Inman Newspaper Cartoon Art

Post by Into The Abyss »

Thought I'd share this with all the forum members. Earlier this year obtained a piece of the late comic actor John Inman's estate after it was auctioned off by Special Auction Services, of Thatcham, Berkshire in 2019.

The cartoon was published in the Sun Newspaper and was signed by the artist Stanley Franklin. It's highly likely that it was obtained by John himself direct from the Sun newspaper & artist at the height of his fame in 1977.

I mainly bought it because I'm a fan of the classic " Are You Being Served" show and that it belonged to the actor himself. And when he passed away in 2007 aged 71, was so sad to see all his personal items that he loved & cherished over the years up for sale.

Anyway, Here it is. Hope you like it. :)

PS. Apologies for the quality of the picture.
