W. Heath Robinson poster

W. Heath Robinson: Poster for Harry Tate’s Fishing. In 3 sheets (some slight loss on vertical fold of the top sheet). 305 x 76cms (120 x 30 inches). John Waddington Ltd c. 1910. Harry Tate’s sketch Fishing was enormously popular and was his mainstay for much of his career. It was first performed in 1904, but my feeling is this was done for a later performance, perhaps around 1910 (Waddingtons did not become John Waddington Ltd until 1905). One of only 2 known Heath Robinson posters. Scarce.
