The Morning of the Final Day

This is 20 PDF pages chock-full of information about the first two days of the Indianapolis Motor Speedway's first race meet. Romance was front and center as G&J Trophy winner Lewis Strang was pictured kissing his beautiful actress wife Jeanne L. Spaulding (stage name: Louise Alexander) after his victory. Theirs was a turbulent marriage with neither partner caring for the other's profession. You can find more on Strang elsewhere on First Super Speedway. Included are articles that provide great event summaries, quotes and descriptions of the setting, teams and crowd. One sidebar discusses the strain the event put on hotel capacity.
