This photo request is from a photo researcher working on content for a new museum in the UK.
‘There are a couple of images that we have in a book, Parry Thomas Designer Driver which we would like to use in the museum, but cannot find the rights to. I have contacted the publisher Batsford Books, and they said they are happy for us etc use the images, however the images are also credited to other sources in the book.’
30. 1926 Thomas in Thomas Special 2
This is credited to ‘Topical Press’, who I believe are now owned by Getty. However Getty say they do not have the image.
23. Thomas with the original Higham Special
This was credited to Barratt’s Photo Press Limited, who I believe were bought by PA, who referred me to Alamy.
Alamy do not have this image, and I also checked with Getty who don’t have it either.
If you have these images in your photo library or any other similar shots please email me in the first instance email@example.com
