Evocative images

I was given a number of card-mounted photographs by the nephew of the photographer, who was Colin Clark, of Wragby.

When he died, apparently there were many of these pictures, so I do not know how many survived.
To my mind, these are brilliant photos and really evocative of the time.

I do not know what recognition Colin Clark got at the time, but they are a great tribute to his skill.
I have scanned them, and cleaned up scratches and marks, and here’s one as a taster.

The sample image is of Jacky Beeton on a Norton outfit (the only rider who appears on two images) at Cadwell Park. I believe the Cadwell pictures were taken around 1948 to 1950.
