Hluk is a town in the Zlin region of south-eastern Morovia in Czechoslovakia. Zlin was the host region for a number of ISDT events. Recently the town has developed a web site to create an archive of its history where it has posted this collection of photos from the ISDT 1953 event taken by a town resident.

These images will be largely unknown in the UK and will be the first time many of the scenes will be new to the Speedtracktales regular followers including Geoff Wagger who will not have seen this photo of his dad Reg before.

These images were likely to have been taken on the first day.

The images can also be viewed at the Hluk Chronicle web site
