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.

It is said that if you line up all the cars in the world end to end, someone would be stupid enough to try to pass them.
