1914 Indianapolis 500

This is a clip from Barney Oldfield's scrapbook about the 1914 Indianapolis 500. Barney Oldfield, Jules Goux, Ralph DePalma, Teddy Tetzlaff and others are pictured with the grim reaper giving a sense of the sensationalism in newspapers that dominated the day. Rene Thomas won the race and Oldfield, driving a Stutz, was the highest finishing American in an American car.
