Dacre Stubbs Historic Photos

Written 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.
