Topfoto returns picture Search, Scan and Deliver request from the archives in 1 hour

Congratulations and thanks to the picture research team at UK based picture library Topfoto for a record return on an image request from the archives.

PAN emailed Topfoto this morning with this request via our Press Photo History Project:
‘Hi Will,
The attached photo was taken in the early 60`s by Planet News on the occasion of the presentation of a sculptured bust of Count Basie at Dobell`s jazz record shop in Charing Cross Road. The sculpture was done by my then wife Elaine Stratton. There were other shots taken and so I`d be keen to see them. Does anyone know anything about these pics ? Does Planet News still exist ?’
Topfoto returned the whole shoot via a contact sheet and extra caption info – see the result here
