Donald Campbell dies in Bluebird (3/3) by Michael Brennan

On the 4th of January 1967 the eyes of the world were drawn to a cold, deep stretch of water in the English Lake District.

Donald Campbell was the holder of eight world speed records and was the only person to set both land and water world speed records. Following in his father’s footsteps, Sir Malcolm Campbell, who had held 13 world speed records in the twenties and thirties Donald seemed determined to beat his father’s records.

He died seconds before breaking his own water speed record as his jet powered boat Bluebird K7 summersaulted and broke up as it impacted with the water.

    At Fleet Street's Finest we sell C-Type prints and Alumini ChromaLuxe. Digital C-Type photographic prints use similar exposure techniques to 'dark room' analogue developing techniques but without the need for a negative.

    Equally the enlarging, focusing and exposure to the paper is managed by a computer using lasers or LEDs rather than a bulb. The following process is still very much the same with the paper being processed in chemical developer, followed by a bleech fix before a wash to remove the processing chemicals.

    A C-Type print very much has its origins in traditional photographic processes but is originated from a digital file rather than a negative. Though, obviously, some of our vintage images are from scans of negatives.
