Raymond MaysThis is just about one of my favorite motoring photographs–it shows Raymond Mays, an excellent British driver before Hitler’s War, reacting to his car’s loss of a wheel on a hill climb. Mays later went on to found BRM, a manufacturer of race cars designed to bring the Grand Prix championship to the English. He was also, in the euphemism of the day, a “lifelong bachelor,” quite talented in the dramatic arts.

Bourne was the home of Mays and there is a most interesting site about the town and its history: Bourne, Lincolnshire, England in Words and Pictures by Rex Needle.
