 Summary

Drawn from material held in the John Johnson Collection of printed ephemera, this was the first major digitization project at Oxford. It focuses on the 15 boxes of Motor Car ephemera in the John Johnson Collection, supplemented by 1,000 images of other forms of transport. The images were produced by means of Kodak's Photo-CD technology: the original items were photographed onto 35mm slides, and scanned onto Photo-CD discs. These were then processed to convert the images to compressed JPEG and GIF images at the various resolutions used in the system.
