AUTO SLIDES by Blackwell will be removed immediately upon request.
Amongst the amazing photo's Steve Arnaudin sent me taken by his father Ed in 1958/59 are a series of 12 purchased slides marked AUTO SLIDES by Backwell.
I wonder if any body knows who Blackwell was and how to get in touch with him / her ?
If any one knows anything about the #54 D-type or #18 C-type I'd be grateful for any information which will be duly credited in a a forthcoming blog.
The only thing I could find on Racingsportscars.com was reference to a Carlyle Blackwell who used to drive a #18 C-Type chassis 007 on the West Coast but I can find no references after 1957 and have no idea if his car was red, I have been through Terry O'Neil's excellent Northeast American Sports Car Races and again drawn a blank.
Any help will be much appreciated if I can get in touch with the copyright holder I'll post some more of these interestingly illuminated shots.
Thanking you in anticipation of your responses.

Pamela tells me that her brother is seen at the wheel of the #18 Jaguar C-type in the photograph and that the photo was taken in Carlyle Blackwell's driveway.
