Nunney, Alfred John

1897 – 1966

Nunney produced posters used to promote the war effort during the Second World War and, around 1947, a number of posters describing various aspects of education around the British Colonial Empire. He was represented by both W. Partridge and Rogers & Co. Contributed to Swift Annual and Bible Story.

His first commercial work is recorded as early as 1923 around which time he was living at Lincoln’s Inn, Holborn. In the mid-1930s he was living in New Maldon. His exact dates of birth and death are at this point unknown. He might have been the A. J. Nunney living in Ewell in the 1970s. He might be Albert John Nunney (1898-1990) who died in Cheltenham, Glos., aged 91.
