Information and discussion on all aspects of British photographic history

Classic British Motoring Prints from 1896 online

For the first time ever, a unique picture library of over 5,000 historic photographs, advertisements and other promotional material from the archives of the British motor industry have become available online.

At the heart of Motorgraphs is the extensive historic photographic archive of the British Motor Industry Heritage Trust (BMIHT) along with two exceptional private collections – the Grand Prix Library and the Spitzley Collection. Between them these priceless resources span over a 100 years of the motor industry and motor sport including racing, rallying, advertising, manufacturing and social history. Many of the photographs were taken by such legendary action photographers as Geoffrey Goddard, George Monkhouse and Nigel Snowden.

Prints for private use can be obtained directly from the site. Scans for commercial purposes such as publication, press, graphic, and exhibition use are also available upon request. Details can be found here.
