Description

Photograph from an album of prints collected by English motorist, motor car manufacturer and aviator Charles Stewart Rolls (1877-1910). Rolls founded Rolls-Royce Ltd with Sir Frederick Henry Royce (1863-1933) in 1906, creating one of the most famous motoring companies in the world. He was a regular and succesful competitor in many of the early motor races, and was a keen aviator, making the first non-stop double crosing of the English Channel by aeroplane. Rolls was killed in 1910 when his plane crashed at the Bournemouth Air Show.
