Description

Photograph taken from an album of images collected by Charles Stewart Rolls (1877-1910), English motorist, motor car manufacturer and aviator. Rolls was a keen driver and was well known in the car world. He took part in many famous races including the 1000 Miles Trial (1900) and the 15,000 Mile Trial (1907). He founded Rolls-Royce Ltd with Sir Frederick Henry Royce (1863-1933) in 1906, creating one of the world's most famous marques. His interests later turned to aviation, and he became the first person to make a non-stop double crosing of the English Channel by aeroplane.
