Bill says: Hello John, Another bit for your collection.  I was digging in the garage yesterday and came across this book.  A booklet really.  Its title is Stanley Woods,  a short biography by W.F. McCleery.  It is a photo of Stanley at Harold's Cross speedway.   Another branch of the sport is represented by this photograph of Stanley's winning form at Harold's Cross speedway, Dublin on a Douglas 1923".    Still love to visit your site. It is outstanding.
John says: Thanks for the info etc Bill and a big thank you for the praise. Thanks for the excellent 1928 photograph.
