1896 Races

Message par TMT le Sam 14 Jan - 15:32

Hi everyone, this is my first post on this amazing forum!  I used to post old racing pics (from the 1890s) on the old Aerogi forum under the name acaffi.
Here's just a little taster here of some of the stuff I have.  Most forums seem only to be interested in the World Championship years from 1950, but if you guys are keen, I have lots more to post from 1878 to 1949! Very Happy

The start area at the Casino de la Plage

Was easy for me, born and raised in Marseilles, and having lived in Paris, nearby Versailles for decades Wink
