/ FS: Dougal Haston Signed Photo/Print
Way back in the far reaches of time my dad used to be an active climber/mountaineer and once attended a talk by Dougal Haston.
From this he bought for the pricey sum of 4d a signed print that has hung for as long as I have been alive on my parents Hall/stairs wall. well his hand finally gave out last Saturday after many years on the ice and he arrived very unceremoniously at the bottom of the stairs...
To cut a story short they are decorating and decided he is up for replacement so does anyone want an A2 (approx) signed image of Dougal Haston? Unframed and posted in a tube. Open to offers on price, just to cover postage and dads 4d!
I'll take it! £10 ok?
SOLD! PM me your address and i will reply with payment info!
Have sent you a message
Dad assures me it is Dougal Haston..... I can only go on what he tells me.
I have a few Doug Scott signed things, and that signature is remarkably similar...
and yet the Haston signature here is similar to the poster.... http://jpmountainbooks.com/webbooks/hastonhighpcard/pic5.html
It seems quite clearly to be Doug Scott's signature, unless Dougal Haston spelt his name "Doug Scott" :)
just to be clear here, i am running on my dads info, and he said Dougal Haston, but it was over 40 years ago as Haston died in 1977. This is my dad who walks upstairs and ask my mom what he came up for!
Either way it is Sold to maybe_si.
Is it worth more as a Doug Scott or as a Dougal Haston??? i dont care, i have agreed a price with maybe_si, he is happy as am i!
Glad to hear youre both happy with the sale.
