Hi Will,

I am the archives manager for Bauer Consumer Media, based in Peterborough.
I have just seen on the Home page of the Press Photo History site that Mr Baz Staple is looking to contact the copyright holder for Temple Press.
I believe it is us! I think it was an archive that was bought or inherited or something along those lines by the publishers of Car magazine/Motorcyclenews magazine (could have been Emap back in the day or in that company’s or mags previous incarnation).
Anyway I am fascinated by your Press Photo History project and would like to offer some help as we go through our archives in sending on info etc.
Thanks and regards,

Getty images have all the central press photos files

Planet news was taken over by UPI at the beginning of the sixties. And I believe that Bettmann archives now hold the bulk of all historically material

Up to the time they were taken over by Reuters in 1985.

Hi Will

To sum up our situation I will be the editor of a book to be published early next year called The Story of the Sunbeam MCC’s Pioneer Run®.  The publisher will be the Sunbeam Motor Cycle Club Ltd. who have run the ‘London to Brighton’ Pioneer Run for pre 1915 motorcycles and three wheelers continuously from 1930, with the exception of the war years.
