More Old Photos - Geoff Cannell estate


Recommended Posts

Got some more pics at auction the other day. Mostly belonging to the estate of the late Geoff Cannell I believe. I didn't get all of the lots on offer as that would have blown the budget I set myself but the fact that all of them sold, and some at healthy prices, means there seem to be enough people out there who care about this kind of stuff and will keep the memories of days gone by alive. I have two plus shoebox sized boxes yet to scan, so these are just a few. There is everything from TT to trials to races elsewhere. It will be a while! Maybe I'll make this a thread for all of them. I'm also sticking them on Facebook but not everyone is on there.

The first set I think is from 1985 and includes Joey Dunlop with a big camera fitted, which was used to film V Four Vistory. No goPros back then :)

There is also a ton of newspaper clippings to scan. This is the content of just one of a few envelopes, all 1960 MGP related I think. Some were too big to scan at once so go over multiple images.

Geoff was an absolute encyclopedia on the tt and mgp Lots of folk did not like him because they did not understand him. He shot from the hip and gained my respect for that. Gone too soon in my opinion.

Great to see these photos, but wouldn't linking to an online album be better than posting them in the thread?

 

I did post them on FB but wanted them posted here as well for anyone not on there. Might do separate threads for each batch of scans or something.
