The article in attachment IMSpave091609 originally appeared in the September 16, 1909 Indianapolis Star. It is a significant artifact as it notes the exact day that work began to pave the Indianapolis Motor Speedway with bricks.

This photo montage of work to pave the Indianapolis Motor Speedway with bricks first appeared in the September 19, 1909 Indianapolis Star. Reportedly the work began three days prior on September 16.
I reached a milestone in my archive of primary research on the 1905 James Gordon Bennett Cup auto race.

Check it out.
