John Halcrow, a friend of mine for 50 years, has come up with a few mid to late 50s Box Brownie pics from Bathurst etc.. John raced Appendix J in the 1960s at the Farm, Orange Gnoo Blas, Hume Weir etc. He ran a 1953 series Holden which ended up red with a white GT stripe right down the centre, hence the page colour.
