"I may be wrong but wouldn't the handwritten 'copy' be instructions to a photographer (possibly with dimensions below) to copy this image, rather than this image being a copy?"

Flickr Commons Celebrates 5th Birthday

Hello James, I've tried to reply to your message (ref: 1920's racing cars) BUT disappointingly your message/the message you responded to AND my ?Leica 250 Prototype blog have all disappeared from my 'My Page' overnight!
