The Kettering Leader & Guardian started as the Kettering Leader & Observer in 1890, becoming the KL&G in 1923 to 25th Sept 1959

This local Kettering paper contained many adverts created by the Blamires' Studio (also in the Northamptonshire Evening Telegraph), where Frank had his first job. Our problem comes in not knowing for sure which are Bellamy's work and which others in the studio. Their authorship is admittedly open to debate, however, browsing through a lot of Bellamy's forties work convinces us of the similarity in style.
