We’ve loads of photos we’ve taken ourselves over the years at shows, in car parks or even parked in the street.
But we’ve also bought quite a few old photos from antique fairs, car boot sales or even e-bay. Obviously with modern digital cameras you have a greater chance of getting a sharp focus with all the colours sharp and realistic. But years ago, with the old wet film cameras with fixed lenses often the picture came out slightly blurry or the photo has faded a bit over the years. To us, this adds some of the charm to these old photos. So we decided to label them differently, so you have the opportunity to search them out separately. Such as this Armstrong Siddeley Star Sapphire on holiday in Scotland in August 1970.
So when you go on the Cars page and see the Search for Cars, underneath is Advanced Search in green. Click on that and then enter ‘Old Photos’ in the Event Name. This will then bring up all the Old Photos, such as this Lamborghini 350GT taken at Prescott Hillclimb in June 1973. However, it could also be found under Lamborghini 350GT too !
