Old IOM Pics

Recommended Posts

Got some old pics in an auction lot. Some are of car races in the lat 1940s and bikes, plus random IOM pics from unknown years. Fun to try and match them to their locations and to see how little things have changed in 70 years. The son of the owner of one of the cars even contacted me to say the car still exists and is in Belgium. I think it was the 1949 race winner.

Some non racing pics from the same lot, originals and colorized versions. Most are IOM, some aren't.

These are great. Did you colourise the colour ones that are duplicates? Also liking the past/present superimpositions.

The riders in some of those pics are going the wrong way around the course! Was there a 180' direction change at some time in the past?
