"The Line-Up for the Start" Annual 500 Mile International Sweepstakes Indianapolis Motor Speedway - May 30 - 1918 [1913] Obsequio de The Gibson Company Indianapolis - Indiana U.S.A.

Abstract

An international field of drivers and mechanics line up on the track before the 1913 race. The winning car was a Peugeot driven by Jules Goux from France and his teammate from Italy, Paul Zuccarelli. The reference to the Gibson Company on the caption indicates this was possibly intended as a gift from the company to friends and customers. The Gibson Company sold and distributed automobile accessories and was associated with the owner of the Speedway, Carl G. Fisher. [The year written on the negative is incorrect, the correct year is 1913]The original nitrate negative was copied with funds provided by a grant from the National Historical Publications and Records Commission in 1990. This digital image was created from that copy. The copy prints and negatives are stored in Microfiche Number order
