Film Review

BBC 2, in The Last Machine, featuring early cinema films, made the point that then accuracy was not important, but that today it is.

So, although it is scarcely possible to do full justice to any driver in a magazine article, the young American driver was...

SCRAP-BOOK FROM time to time readers' scrapbooks are loaned to the Editor and have the effect of making him wish that lie had been more industrious in his youth and had commenced one. The latest to come to hand is one compiled in his schooldays by I. M. Clark, who, incidentally, was at school with Whitehead, Gerald Sumner and Watson, the Talbot driver.

GOOD OLD DAYS AT BROOKLANDS CONTINUING SOME RAMBLING REMINISCENCES OF A REGULAR BROOKLANDS HABITUE BEFORE reverting to the old photograph album which has inspired these memories, I must record that I have been taken to task by a reader for two inaccuracies in my first article.
