Great photo, the surroundings don't quite go with the cutting edge technologies of the cars therein!

Sorry Richard, but the text is not really interesting. It talks about the LONDON MEWS where was located MARGULIES. Nothing about LANCIA or AURELIA.

Danny Margulies was most helpful to me when, as an impecunious youth, I owned my first Augusta. he found me some good original  headlamps for not a lot of money, amongst other things.
 He was well known in VSCC circles as he raced a Conaught in a style of his own, sawing at the steering wheel at most corners. It must have cost him a few seconds a lap!

         If my memory is to be trusted (I am still away in Oz)  71 BX? is Ken Couzens Aprilia.

I have 71 BXP as follows:
Chassis: 438-26760
Engine: 99-28376
Made 1946 saloon.  Scocca 16999. 
Imported to UK 22 March 1961 by Ronald Barker. 
At Harry Manning’s garage August 1978 - Blue   
1973-1979: G L Baker (dec’d)
1978: David Corfield?
1982-1986: Ken Couzens
But nothing after that.

Very interesting to see the Margulies premises.  My father bought and sold our 1937 Aprilia (ELB 243) to Margulies in the 1950s.  I do not have a record of the Aurelia B20 shown behind Margulies.

I think the photo was taken well before 1961. More like 1951, but I don't know when Danny Margulies was at that mews. Ron Barker might know.

Danny raced a 4CL Maserati later and I came across him often. Went to his funeral a few years ago.
Another claim to fame is that he raced a Jaguar C type against the professionals, employing as second driver/mechanic a certain G Hill. You can read all about it in Graham's autobiography.

1 - Here is a photo of John Ure and Dan Margulies in April 1992, but I have not recorded where this was or how I obtained the photo.  Perhaps someone else knows more?

2 - "The Automobile" magazine did several articles not long ago on Dan Margulies racing career.

The photo was probably taken from this thread at the time of his death in 2010 and is at Silverstone:

On the centenary trip in Turin I rode with Dan Margulies' former secretary, Helen Dupre, in her red Fulvia Zagato. Sadly the work on her car by a Lancia "specialist" wasn't all it could have been so she gave up the Lancia and moved on to other things.

The B95 Berkeley seen in the centre of the photo was not introduced until 1959, so the photo cannot predate that. As far as I can recall, Dan Margulies did not trade in new cars (the wheels don't look that clean in any case!), so it is far more likely that the Berkeley is two to three years old at least, so that dates the photo to the early 1960s.
