Description

Footage of the North West 200 during the 1960s with shots of spectators taking up positions and viewing the race. Sections of this footage were included in the Super 8 Story, 'The North West 200'.

Notes

Stanley McIlreavy first took up an interest in cine films after a visit to the Bolex movie camera factory in Switzerland. He was ideally placed to take up the hobby, working as he did in a photographic retail shop in Belfast and eventually owned, as he puts it, “nearly every camera on the market!” Stanley became heavily involved in his hobby becoming Secretary of the CPA Cine Society but didn’t make the transition to video whenever it became the dominant format, preferring instead to concentrate on stills photography.
