MOTORCYCLE RACES IN 1949

2010  THE YEAR OF VALLEY ADVENTURES

To our good fortune these photographs given to the Archives of The Museum of the San Fernando Valley by Porky Johnson, are marked with the date they were taken. These races in Topanga Canyon were shot on July 27th, 1949. At the next opportunity, I'll ask Porky the exact location. At 86 he mentioned the exact place, but your Museum blogger forgot it. (humm! Says something about Porky, doesn't it?)

 Motorcycle races - Gift to The Museum of the San Fernando Valley from Porky Johnson - November 2010 - (click on images to enlarge -  refer to photograph 2005 above, and 2004 below.
