- These autographs were collected by Brian Healey when he and his brothers were taken by their father Donald Healey to pre-war race meetings and Grand Prixs, where of Donald knew the signatories well. Brian particularly recalls the 1937 Grand Prix at Donnington , and collecting the German team drivers signatures.
Whilst the album is understandably mostly motoring related, there are others he recalls in there, for example Tommy Farr, the boxer, who went 12 rounds with Jo Louis. Also a couple of test pilots when Donald took them on one occasion to Coventry airdrome.
