Item # 646140
May 30, 1911
SPRINGFIELD REPUBLICAN, Massachusetts, May 30, 1911
* Indianapolis 500 Inaugural
The top of page 2 has first column heads: "Speed Mania Rules Town" "Thousands At Indianapolis" "Burman Breaks Four Records" Much nice text on the first running of what would become a classic event in the world of sports: the Indianapolis 500.
Sixteen pages, irregular at the spine, some minor margin tears, generally good. Somewhat fragile & must be handled carefully.
