IMPORTANT! WHEN BUYING PHOTOS FROM US:
All the original vintage images are sold without watermarks.
All our press photos are LIMITED ARCHIVE ORIGINALS - they are not reprints or digital prints produced by us. We sell them in the same conditions they were given to us by the archives.
SEE the BACKSIDE OF the PHOTO - many times the image for sale will present stamps, dates and other publication details - these marks attest and increase the value of the press photos.
Since the photos are old press photograps they may have scratches, lines or other wears of time, which just underlines the authenticity and age of the photos.
What you will buy from us has a true historical value and authenticity. All these old photos have a story to tell and come from reliable sources.
In the past, the photos were often parts of series or were mass produced by the archives. Nowadays, their number is decimed - many were destroyed by time, use or natural disasters. Few were preserved and are nowadays carefully stored in our archives.

FLEET STREET 7A
GUN AND TANK USED BY V.C.s. An anti-tank gun which
was manned in North Africa in 1942 by Pte. A. H. Wakenshaw,
V.C, being examined by Sir Anthony Eden after he had opened
the Victoria Cross Centenary Exhibition at Marlborough House
esterday. Pte. Wakenshaw, of the Durham Light Infantry,
although seriously wounded, continued to fire the gun, causing
heavy losses among the enemy troops. In the background is
a tank in which Lt. C. H. Sewell won the posthumous award
of the V.C. in France in August, 1918. In full view and short
range of the enemy machine-guns he went, to the rescue of
the crew of another tank which had overturned in a shell hole.
He then assisted his own driver who was lying wounded
behind the tank.
