Dacre Stubbs Historic PhotosWritten by
It is now 10 years or so in which the Dacre Stubbs photographs have been displayed on Motormarques. Unfortunately, technological changes over time have brought a certain deterioration of the galleries. These changes have destroyed much of the charm and historic interest of the originals. In bringing them back to new life, I hope to re-stimulate appreciation both of the quality of the photographs and of their power to reincarnate the atmosphere of 1947and onwards.Bill Hunter/ courtesy Martin Stubbs.
