Found in the Archive — Lotus Works Hornsey

Working on some research for a publisher we came across these really interesting press shots of mechanics working on a new Batch of Lotus Elevens inside the Lotus works in Tottenham Lane, Hornsey and one in the yard outside. I say ‘Press Shots’ as I question if there really would have been seven mechanics working on the cars at one time! I think this photo was taken around early in 1957 but can’t be sure. If anyone can help with and information on when this might have been taken, the car, or who any of the people in the image are, please do email us. It would be nice to put some names to the faces!
