Jenatzy's Mercedes Photo


Jenatzys Mercedes PhotoHelp me find a quality image of this photograph.  It was taken during the 1903 Paris-Madrid race and is of Camille Jenatzy's Mercedes at speed taken by the artist Guido Sigriste who invented the high speed camera used.  This version was taken from a webpage and is the only version I have been able to find.  The glass plates were printed from in the 1950's,  even quatity digital images would be great.

There seems to be little doubt that this photo was taken during the Paris-Madrid race. Many competitors were photographed by Sigriste at exactly this location, always with the tree about halfway the car! One of the most famous became the photo of Marcel Renault, shown in many publications about the race.
