Copyright to clear: Tella or Brook-Tella photo agency – 1930’s image

This in from a PPHP visitor – journalist Russell Hays – who is looking to clear copyrights on a motor industry book. He is currently clearing material with Mirrorpix, Topfoto, LAT and Fox Photos but needs help locating an agency called Tella or Brook Tella which operated during the 1930’s Devonshire Street and Exmoor Street London.

Hi Will
Good to talk to you today. Here’s more detail about the book, my pictures and the copyright tracing I’m looking at.

My idea, taken up by The History Press, is called Earls Court Motor Show, an illustrated history. Due out in 2016 but all copy and pics need to be in by late September 2015 (!). I’d like to get my final pic selection sorted by late August. It’s a nostalgic look at the building (now being demolished), the show and the cars between 1937 and 1977, really trying to get the atmosphere on press and public days.
