My daughter-in-law is the grandaughter of Harry Louis, author of several
books and Editor of The Motor Cycle magazine. I am trying to find photographs,
film and stories of or about him. He died when she was quite young and
the family have very little information. Any help would be appreciated.
He was very famous as a trials rider as well as a writer, author and
editor so there must be photographs and even people who knew him and worked
message: Dear sirs, I wish to buy the following English motorcycle
magazines if you have them: Classic Motor Cycling No.17, Motor Cycle May
1970, Motorcycle Sport Jan 1968.

Thanks for that. These are exactly what I required. I now know that
1948 is the first one I wanted so I think I have all but the 1962 Bank
Holiday event covered.
The only one I would like, and does not appear on your lists, is The
Cycling for 9th August 1962 (I have the Motor Cycle but it does not
give a full report).
Thanks for all your assistance, I am not sure where I am going with
this research but if anything is ever published I would like to put in
an acknowledgement to your assistance.
