Stunning, immense panorama photograph of cars tailgating in the infield and the spectators seated and standing in the stand in their fashionable boater hats. You can feel the level of excitement building as the race cars come around the track into the field of vision from beyond the fray. HEEEEERRRREEE THEY COME around the turn they are almost upon us. There are 40 of them, each qualified by sustaining 75 mph before the race. The photo reads "North Grandstands Indianapolis Motor Speedway During 500 Mile Race May 30, 1911 Cirkut Photo by C.F. Bretzman INDPLS." This sepia photo is clear and resolute, a perfect image for a historic day, you can see the detail of the cars on the field in the foreground and the fans in the stands. It has a rough edge at top and a one inch edge tear on right border, but is still one of the best Indianapolis 500 pieces we have offered.
