Tasmanian, Keverall Thompson was a committee member of the MG Car Club of Tasmania from 1959 until 1964 when he moved to the mainland and settled in Glen Osmond in South Australia. Keverall worked as an official, a flag marshall and in the control tower at the International meetings at Longford and attended meetings at Symmons Plains, Baskerville & Port Wakefield. He had the opportunity to take some wonderful photos and these can be seen on the next few pages. All are unique and have never been published before.........Many thanks for sharing Kev.
