Mention Savannah, and most people will think of moss-draped oaks, genteel Southern charm, excellent cooking and beautiful scenery. Not many would associate Savannah with goggle-clad, helmetless race car drivers roaring past crowds of nattily dressed onlookers from the early 1900s. Yet, from 1908 – 1911, the wonderful landscape, architecture and atmosphere of Savannah was home to the predecessor of the most famous race in the world, the Indianapolis 500.
In this book, GHS presents a wonderful look at the years Savannah was the American center of racing. Included are never-before published photographs from the Society’s collection, as well as insightful and well-researched text.
