Happy New Year all! Montlake bridge near the University Of Washington Seattle. Crossed the Montlake Cut many times on that bridge. My Dad ran the Mason Shop at the UW for many years, summers off school I'd get to tag along to work once in awhile, great adventure for a boy, the lovely Mrs. 99 is a Husky, and my son was born at the U of W Hospital. Gary stick around, your posts are appreciated.
Cars from Holland and from Indonesia.....
The first three photos are Vukovich (maybe a pre-war photo?), Dick Simon, and (I think) Fred Frame. The fourth photo is a very interesting sports car that I'm not sure of. It's parked next to the Firestone Tire truck and has what looks to be Monza Indy tires on it. Maybe this was at Riverside?
And I'm not sure about the photo with the two midgets or the track that they are on.
Thanks again, Rootie. And have a Happy and Healthy New Year!!!
My contribution for the start of the new year.
I think the sports car may be one of the Scarabs.
You're right about Vuky but I think that is probably late 40s in his Drake powered car. It is Dick Simon in one of his early 60s supers (seen below) and Frame in the "Doosie" at unknown track.
I'm not positive about the sports racer but I think it may be a Scarab at Riverside late 50s. No idea about the 2 midgets either, but I believe the track is probably Fresno early 50s.
And a Happy New Year to you too!!

WRONG SO WRONG
Is that the old Brew 102 factory, near the Union Station in Los Angeles? Wow, an old photo. My dad worked near there, near the city hall from 1950 to 1982. We drove by that place often.
"More than 100 beers we did brew,
Perfecting the new finer Brew 102.
In the East and the West,
Maier Beer is the best.
Wonderful, wonderful Brew 102."
"In 1972, the suds of Brew 102 stopped flowing in Los Angeles. The old brewery closed; 102 was made in Tumwater, Wash. The huge copper kettles from the city's oldest brewery -- kettles the employees used to fill with water and swim in when the week's batch of beer was done -- were abandoned. The building became an unofficial refuge for the homeless for 13 years. The pots and kettles that were not stolen were sold for scrap before the buildings were torn down in 1985 for a parking lot."
