Pictures from my Archive… a frequent dip in to photographs that I want to share with you….

What a job..... talk about green with envy..."The MotorCycle" editor, although it could be George Wilson who was a journalist with them at the time, tests Freddy Frith's 1949 Junior TT winning 350 DOHC works Velocette following the race. The photo was taken up on the mountain road in the IOM where these tests occured....
Left click on the photo to enlarge.
Many of these photos come from sources that still hold the copyright. For example Morton’s Motorcycle Media, publishers of “Old Bike Mart”, “Classic Racer”, “The Classic Motor Cycle” now own many old EMAP publications such as “The MotorCycle” and “MotorCycling”. They are happy for me to publish with due acknowledgement and where not for commercial gain.
Other photographs come from Fox Photos , Keystone Press Agencies and S.R.Keig Ltd.
