A PPHP reader is searching for information and other images similar to the one above which features his grandfather alongside Douglas Fairbanks and Douglas Fairbanks jnr at The Carlton Hotel on 17/8 /1933. The reader’s grandfather is Allan Rand who he thinks may have been working for the Daily Mail, so this could be a press event. ‘My grandfather is on the left, talking to Douglas Fairbanks. Douglas Fairbanks jnr is second right’.
The image above was shot by London News Agency LNA -a Fleet Street photo agency which no longer exists- but the PPHP is hoping other news agencies attended and the negs are on file ….somewhere!
