Keith Bryen, Aussie privateer in the early 1950's on the Continental Circus...lets visit some more of his personal racing photos......

I've still a small "cache" of Keith Bryen's personal racing photos, kindly loaned to me several years ago by Keith and Gwen and as you will be aware I've run some 10 or so blogs on him so far...use the search facility over on the RHS of this blog to look at earlier ones, type in "Keith Bryen".
Lets have a look at some from 1953......

This will be the last blog over this Christmas period from me until after January 4th, as I'll be out of Sydney at the 65th Australian Jazz Convention at Orange, Central Western NSW from 26th December....thanks for supporting my blog ...
So a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year from The Velobanjogent.
