A photograph of the Motor Show at Olympia in London, taken by Edward Malindine for the Daily Herald newspaper on 11 October, 1933. This general view of the exhibition hall, taken from a balcony, reveals the preparations for the show. The Morris stand in the foreground already has its cars in position - although they are hidden from view by dust sheets. The first British motor show was organised at Crystal Palace in 1903. Just two years later, in 1905, it moved to the bigger venue of Olympia - such was the event's popularity. This photograph has been selected from the Daily Herald Archive, a collection of over three million photographs. The archive holds work of international, national and local importance by both staff and agency photographers.
