TT reprint enjoyed

I just thought I would write to say how much I enjoyed reading The Motor Cycle reprint of the 1939 TT races edition that was a supplement to the August TCM
TT reprint enjoyed

For me, the unsung hero of the publication, was the photographer who was positioned on Bray Hill for the Junior and Senior Races.

The shots of Fleischmann on his DKW, Meier on the BMW, and a completely airborne – and unseated – Frith on the works Norton, are quite brilliant. Those machines would be ‘flying’ at three figure speeds, and I doubt the camera was all that user-friendly. Great stuff!
