Great shot!

The car shows damage from already rolling over at least once before. Both of the guys in the photo were likely already dead when this shot was taken.

There are a couple that seems to move after crashes in this compilation - but internal bleeding may have got them later.. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NyJHaqeX6gk

Yeah, nobody could've survived that. I think those guys had a death wish.

Look at the steering wheel.. The driver slammed right into on initial impact. Those guys are both dead already.. But what's up with the drivers head? Was he wearing some sort of Russian furry hat, or is that just what's left of where his head used to be?

This looks like a posed shot, like the Auto Polo shots.

It looks like a posed shot to me as well. Note that no dirt is being thrown up from the tires and there are no skid marks.

I see very little posing and a lot of blur from a fast rate of speed.

Maybe there's no dirt being thrown up cause this was one of the "down rolls", therefore no skid marks either. Could've been the third or fourth flip for all we know. That's the problem with not having the full history behind the pic. Lot left up to interpretation.

It was the Butler, in the Library, with a candle stick :-)

Kidding aside, There was no provenance with the photo.

I doubt that's posed due to the poor fella's jacket flapping up at the left.

ouch

I would have to say that the car is on a upswing to the right and going to the upright position, the passenger (he's the ballerina in the Nomex suit) is being thrown clear and the drivers momentum is throwing him to the right. Jim

Jay, I appreciate your humor, and all of the neat posts. Keep it up.

Looking at the photo it appears to be a right hand drive early 30's MG. also looking into the back ground there appears to be a large crowd looking on. Also the steering components appear to be vintage English.

just sayin'

I did a reverse image source and got this info:

Boston Public Library:

Southport, England. A remarkable photo, taken at the actual moment of the overturning of a racing car of Miss Mary Cunliffe, English driver, during a 100-mile race on the Southport Sands. Showing her father, who was riding with her being hurled to death.

Oh, and it was 1928.

Oh, now it makes sense - the mysterious blur at the driver's head is her hair.

Look at the dates of these two articles.

Apparently the 100 mph engagement was announced one week before the tragic crash:

When stories travels over the world publication can be weeks after the actual event.
