my city Library has some online archives of thousands of local historical photos; found my house in there along with lots of good classic shots.

More at Shorpy.com; probably the most amazing website of high resolution vintage images I've ever found.

How about some 1942 Middle America action? MUCH larger image on their website.

Upon closer inspection, this looks like it might be the end of the Mulsanne Straight at Le Mans. You can see the right turn (Mulsanne Corner) on the left side of the picture. Apparently the driver missed the apex.:laugh: Can anyone confirm?
