Lewis Reed Photo on Discovery’s Science Channel

Impossible Engineering episode 4 London ArrayIn case you missed it, I got word that Lewis Reed’s 1923 race car photographs were taken out of the U.S. version of Episode 4 ‘London Array’ Series of Impossible Engineering that was scheduled to be broadcast on Thursday, January 24th on Discovery’s Science Channel. The race car photographs were a part of the “London Array Wind Farm” episode that featured a segment on the development of the race car.

According to TwoFour Broadcasting, this has been happening with this series as Discovery requires a shorter episode length than the rest of their broadcasters. However, one of Lewis Reed’s photos made it in the UK version, and the rest of the world. TwoFour was kind enough to send me a DVD copy of the UK version of the London Array episode that shows the archive featured in the show. Below are screen shots taken directly from the DVD.

About Reed Brothers

I am a co-owner of the former Reed Brothers Dodge in Rockville, Maryland. Lewis Reed, the founder of Reed Brothers Dodge was my grandfather. We were a family-owned and operated car dealership in Rockville for almost a century. I served in the United States Air Force for 30 years before retiring in the top enlisted grade of Chief Master Sergeant in July 2006. In 2016, I received the Arthur M. Wagman Award for Historic Preservation Communication from Peerless Rockville for documenting the history of Reed Brothers Dodge in both blog and book format. This distinguished honor recognizes outstanding achievement by writers, educators, and historians whose work has heightened public awareness of Rockville’s architectural and cultural heritage, growth and development.
