Welcome to frank bellamy - the checklist

Frank's work in the Northamptonshire Evening Telegraph shows a sense of confidence in producing not only a weekly football gag cartoon but also additional illustration/cartoons for the main part of the paper. Bellamy's style, whilst at Blamires' Studio seems to permeate the paper in various adverts. These are unsigned, and their authorship may be debated.

The Evening Telegraph (in Kettering) started in 1898 and changed in 1904 to the Northamptonshire Evening Telegraph until 9th April 1988 when it changed to the Kettering Evening Telegraph. A year later on 21 August 1989 it reverted to its original title of Evening Telegraph and then changed back again to Kettering Evening Telegraph in 1996 and continues today.  

Therefore during the time Bellamy contributed it was called Northamptonshire Evening Telegraph Just to confuse this poor Librarian further, the cartoons he committed in the N.E.T. were one thing, but he also had cartoons in the supplement the Footballing Telegraph - or as it was commonly known The Pink 'Un due to the colour of the pages! To differentiate the "two" papers - the Northamptonshire Evening Telegraph itself and the Footballing Telegraph, the supplement, we have listed each before the title of the individual piece

Many of Bellamy's footballing cartoons contained specific repeating cartoon characters - a key follows showing the teams' nicknames:
