Ferret Fotographics?

Post by mab01uk »

Anyone know the best way of contacting Ferret Fotographics, none of the website or email links I found on a search seemed to work. I am looking for some club racing photographs from Fred Scatley and Jeff Bloxam and believe Ted Walker has their archives from the 1970's?

Ted has always been tricky to get hold of by email.

Is there not a phone number on the website?

I have a funny feeling he may have sold up and retired though?

He was usually at the main race events, so might be 'on the road' at weekends during the season, if he's still working.

I always found the only way to get hold of him is in person, so for me, usually at Revival

The other person who might be able to help is Doug Nye as he has the Geoff Bloxham archive (GP Library) who may have covered the same events. - you'll get him via the Autosport Nostalgia Forum.

Ted retired from the photo business and sold his archive last year so not sure how much help he could be. I bought some of it!

Sorry, my original post shoulf have said Doug Nye has the Geoff Goddard Collection under the Grand Prix Archive, but I think he may have bought some of Ted's?

Be worth asking, as even if he didn't, he might know who did (other than Pete!)

This would explain why the last few times I tried to get in touch with Ted, I got nothing in response :)

Someone mentioned he may well have 289 JOB somewhere in the archive. Also pics of Rob Selby's Mini7 car I posted about.

If you remember the image/print I offered you a while back of 288 JOB, that was one of Ted’s!

Nice! Someone else mentioned he might have a pic of it later in life as a rally car.
