A SET OF EIGHT BLACK AND WHITE PHOTOGRAPHS of the Thomas Flyer car, the winner of the 1908 New York to Paris race

In 1908 a rather peculiar automobile competition took place around the world and went down in history not only as a race but a monumental event.

The start of the race took place at Times Square, on a rather grumpy and gray morning, the 12-th of February. The participants made their attempts and traveled from New York to Paris. Considering the state of the automobile technology and poor road infrastructure at the time, the race was a huge bite for all of the participants.

Only three of the six competitors had completed the course. The winner was the American team, driving the 1907 Thomas Flyer.

All photographs are framed. 

32cm x 47cm, 52,5cm x 63,5cm including frame.
