Description

Photograph taken from an album of images collected by Charles Stewart Rolls (1877-1910), English motorist, motor car manufacturer and aviator, showing the cars of Rolls and Hutton at the starting line before the race. Rolls was a keen driver and was well known in the car world, after taking part in many races of the time, including the 1000 Mile 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 motoring companies. His interests later moved to the aviation industry.
