Jim Hall and Jackie Stewart

 

There are 52,188 photos in this Henry Ford Museum Photostream on Flickr including many historically significant racing photos and shoots from various events from 1958 through 1971. Albums include Indianapolis 500, Riverside, LeMans, Mexican Grand Prix, Daytona 500, Sebring, Santa Barbara, Luguna Seca SCCA, Nassau Speed Week, Pacific Grand Prix, Daytona, Pamona, Watkins Glen, St.-Jovite, Sears Point, Kent, Mid-Ohio, Green Valley, Monte Carlo, Dutch Grand Prix, Monterey, Las Vegas Stardust, and Bonneville. TRANSAM, CANAM, NASCAR, Endurance racing, Grand Prix, plus photos of drivers, team owners, fans, pits, paddock, garages, you name it. Well worth a couple of hours exploring. The photos are only about 700 pixels across, so they aren’t that large. But an amazing archive, nonetheless. I was in attendance at several of the races depicted in this archives (Riverside and Stardust), but not in any of the photos that I could find. So while I was walking around taking home movies, someone with actual photo credentials and decent equipment was taking real photos.
