Here's another of the old Kodak Brownie 127 photographs, this one taken during practice for the British Grand Prix at Aintree in July 1959.
It's a Vanwall - Tony Brooks drove the only Vanwall entered in the race and the 'T' on this car shows that it's the training or practice car. The access to the racing circuit is behind the car, so presumably it's being wheeled back into the paddock by two mechanics after a practice run. The Vanwall retired after 13 laps with ignition problems and the race was eventually won by Jack Brabham in a Cooper-Climax T51.
