    1953 Indianapolis 500 Photo Album from Official Track Photographer. The third of three photo albums consigned by the daughter of the Brickyard's official track photographer, this volume provides the most intriguing and comprehensive visual record available of this Depression-era contest. Each 7.5x9.5" photo is mounted on a linen page and remains in splendid condition but for the mild bend one finds in just about every stack of decades-old photography. This was known as the hottest 500, with track temperatures exceeding 130 degrees Farenheit. Bill Vukovich would earn the victory, though he would perish on this same track in two years' time. Well over 200 photos in total here! It's a collection that really needs to be seen in person to be fully appreciated, so we hope interested parties will be able to attend lot viewing in Dallas.

    I am completely satisfied, more to the point, absolutely ecstatic, about not only the proceeds but the wonderful professional manner every aspect of my little consignment was handled.
