    Description

    1940's-60's Johnny Longden Archive of Photographs and Telegrams. Tremendous stack of photos and papers is far too large to itemize, and the chance that a hidden gem lurks within is a real one indeed. Approximately two hundred photographs capture the life of Longden both on the track and off, from his active racing life into retirement. Photos range from snapshot size to 11x14", and show scattered damage, though most remain in EX condition or better. A grouping of over twenty-five telegrams offer congratulations for various noteworthy victories. An intriguing research aid for the horseracing historian.


    Guide Value or Estimate: $400 - $600.
