The 1891 Raleigh F. Brooklands centenary book project

The 1891 Raleigh, one of the Earliest known “Raleigh’s”. To combat the rough roads of the period it had sprung front forks and a well sprung saddle. A front brake was fitted with the brake shoe working on top of the tyre.
Ron was commissioned for a book project to photograph almost the entire historic collection of cars, aircraft and motorcycles at Brooklands museum in Surrey. Taking nearly a year to complete, the complete collection of images are now published as a special book, “100 Years of Brooklands” the birthplace of British motorsport and aviation.
Published by Touchstone Books.
