Bonneville Salt Flats

Dublin Core

Title

Bonneville Salt Flats

Description

Four different cars are displayed on the card, each filling their own panel across the top. This saved space for the single long car displayed in the lower half of the image. Two men stand by the long car and two illustrated racing flags lie in the upper right and left hand corners of the card.

The majority of the space on the front of this postcard is taken up by four colorful cars with unique physical appearances. One of these cars, which is called “The Wingfoot Express” is the biggest out of the four, and is seen resting on an icy surface in front of a mountain, with two men leaning on its sides. In addition to the images on the postcard, there is also two photo-shopped racing flags on each side of the card. (N.S)
