During the years more and more information and photo's can be found on the internet. On my search for old photo's from the early years I was lucky to find a very helpful site with lots of photo's from these old days. The Standford University, and the Revs Institute, has a large and varied collection of automotive material. They are digitizing hundersthousand of photo's for researches and the general public.
Some of the great collections from the early 50's can be found on their site. You have to think at photographers like Karl Ludvigsen, Rudolfo Mailander, George Phillips etc.

On this site you will find some of the photo's from the Revs Digital Library. If you click on the photo you will be forwaded to the Revs Digital site where you can zoom in for a larger photo.
