Pictured: Vintage film posters were also part of the sale - one promoting Carry on Spying (1964) made £812.
A fascinating collection of 1920s 'life-coaching' posters which encouraged good workplace behaviour have sold for £11,000 after a bidding war.
They were produced by the Parker-Holladay company who created the well-dressed character Bill Jones to dispense pearls of wisdom.
The posters were stuck up in factories and offices across Britain and carried messages about self-control and avoiding confrontation.
One of the posters shows a boxing match with the caption 'a winner never quits, a quitter never wins'. Another depicting a young lady playing tennis eschews the benefits of keeping fit, stating that 'health is priceless, it pays to keep it'.
The set of 22 posters, which belonged to a collector, went for almost four times their estimate with Ewbank's Auctions, of Woking, Surrey.
