The Lady in Red…

This photo of the ‘Lady in Red’ was originally published in the UK’s ‘Picture Post’, but the caption is devoid of all the information we want; car, driver, place. The date of the pic is 20 September 1952…

It’s a C Type Jag, it looks like Stirling Moss, maybe some of you Brits can help with the meeting place and date?

    Mark, based on the date you quote, the most likely event this photo was taken iwould be the August 1952 Boreham meeting. The car should be Tommy Wisdom’s C Type with ‘MDU 212’ rego.

      Thanks Stephen,
      The Getty Images dates can be a bit ropey, sometimes meeting date and sometimes publication dates may be used. But the facts fit, many thanks, it’s a fun shot isn’t it!
