The auctioneers say that the sale will consist of items left by Syd in his Cambridge house. Syd spent his last years living a quiet, yet content, life in the town. Both of his bikes, which he had used every day for visits to the local shops and pub, were hand painted by him and will be included in the sale.

Other items will include several pieces of furniture which Syd customised or made himself, along with the easel, paints and paint table which Syd used regularly to paint.

The History of Art and Art in general were great loves of his, and this is seen in his artwork, his library and his writings, some of which were to be the foundations of an Art History book he was writing. The sale will also include other lots of various books, homemade speakers and a classical guitar.

Viewing for the sale will take place from the previous Sunday and a full colour catalogue will be available. The sale will also be available to view online at
