Motivated by the desire to appreciate this collection of old glass-plate photography, which is owned by the Société d'Encouragement for the Automobile Club de France, its management company wished to develop this invaluable documentary legacy.
It has produced silver printings on high-quality paper in 30x40 cm format. Currently printed in limited editions of 7 copies each, these documents are likely to interest collectors of automobilia, of automobile history, and of photography alike.
These glass plates and the use of the corresponding images are the exclusive property of the Automobile Club de France (S.E.) - Reproduction prohibited.
Purchased photographs will not bear image protection elements (the A.C.F. logo).
The new institutional website of the "Automobile Club de France" has just been put on-line. To discover it : www.automobileclubdefrance.fr.
You will find a brief display of the Club, a new revealing tab "History and Heritage", an evocation of its Society of Encouragement, a small development concerning the international vocation of the A.C.F., without omitting its current events. The members of the Circle benefit from a privatized space, whereas a section proposes its services for all your receptions and conferences.
So as to brand and immortalize these sumptuous, century-old glass-based negatives, which cannnot be used directly, we have chosen to offer you a selection of these images printed on exceptional baryta-quality silver photographic paper, traditionally processed, in limited editions numbered 1-7, and in a 30 cm x 40 cm format.
