You can also get prints of builders photos of some of these cars.
Keith Retterer has Standard Steel negatives. Frank Ellington copied
many, many ACF negatives. He no longer offers prints and it's hard to
figure out who has the negatives.
Don't forget the ultimate source of Cyc photos: Andrew Merrilees bought much of the Simmons-Boardman back files from old Cycs, and those photos are now at the National Archives of Canada. Superb stuff, and not all of it appeared in Cycs.
