MUSEUM COLLECTIONS


Update


An early Paddock scene from the Dick Lewis Collection


(Brooklands Museum Archives).


Dick Lewis Collection Dick Lewis has long been associated with Brooklands. Many will be familiar with the Lewis & Sons door on the ‘lock ups’ opposite the Jackson Shed which is based on the Weybridge BSA dealership owned and run by Dick and his father. Dick was also a founder member of the Brooklands Society and one of the first ‘Track Clearers’ who set about preserving the Track in the 1970s. Throughout his association with the site, Dick


was a keen collector and amassed an extensive collection of photographs, postcards, pro- grammes, documents and memorabilia detailing the history of Brooklands from the very begin- ning. We are delighted that Dick’s widow Doreen is donating his collection to the Museum for preservation and to act as a research resource for those involved in preserving Brooklands history. Thomson & Taylor tools We were very pleased to receive two tool-boxes from the grandson of George Albert Bryant.


George began working at Brooklands as a ma- chinist with the Thomas Inventions Development Company, founded by Parry Thomas. After the death of Parry Thomas, Bryant continued to work for the company as it became Thomson & Taylor. He worked on all the firm’s major projects, in- cluding Malcolm Campbell’s ‘Blue Bird’s and Cobb’s Railton Special. Wellington photographs We offer our thanks to Mrs Janet Pennington for allowing us to borrow and copy a collection of photographs showing damage sustained by Vickers Wellingtons during World War Two. Mrs Pennington’s step-father, N G Gregory, worked for Vickers during the war repairing aircraft that were returned to the factory after sustaining structural damage on bombing raids over Europe. These photographs demonstrate the


Railton LSR car under construction with John Cobb (fourth from left), Ken Taylor (third from left) and five others, including G A Bryant (second from left) (Brooklands Museum Archives).
