Tic Tac men at Ascot races, 1935


Tic Tac men at Ascot races, 1935


Tic-tac is a traditional method of signs used by bookmakers to communicate the odds of certain horses. It is still used in on-course betting in the UK. A tic-tac man will usually wear bright white gloves to allow their hand movements to be easily seen. This beautiful black and white photograph is hand made from a Bill Brandt Archive negative. This is as close to Brandt original photograph as most people can purchase, and it is beautiful. Each print is on Ilford paper with a numbered stamp verso.
