Douglas feature in CM, june 2007 issue
« on: 23 May 2007 at 13:06 »
hi all,


try to get hold of the new issue of the Classic Motorcycle; it features a 7 page article about the early history of Douglas. It concerns the models up to 1926 and is the first in a line of four articles celebrating the 100th anniversery of our beloved brand.

lots of lovely pics of the veteran models (starting from Chris' 1911 Model D)

the next article will appear in the august issue.


regards,

Michiel

Good article, but unfortunately, in my magazine at least, the pictures are dreadfully pixalated. The lining on Alan Commbes 3 1/2 tank looks like a dotted line! Shame.

mine is the same,

looks like they scanned 'traditional' photos. the pixels from the scan and the printing-proces then produce a Moiré-effect, resulting in some thing like this...

the straight lines seem to be the problem; on some pics, like the detail of the model D (p. 49), you can see very single raindrop...!
