Ray Eldershaw, a top Australian motor racing mechanic shot some Box Brownie pics at Mt Panorama, other circuits and race meetings the early 50s. Pics too good not to post, there is always something of interest in every photo taken...thanks Ray.

This is a MK IV. It is the John Nind car, which was sold to Ash Marshall in 1953. It was white in colour from new with Nind, and still white when sold to Marshall – he repainted it after one Druitt meeting. In this photo it looks new, so likely to be Nind.
