Bill Endicott @ Time Trials!

This image of Bill Endicott at the wheel of his Cole race car appeared in the December 12, 1909 Indianapolis Star. Endicott's photo was part of a collection of pictures supporting the Sunday edition of the paper's coverage of the upcoming time trials at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. The track had only recently been paved with 3.2 million bricks. Bill was the elder brother of Harry Endicott.
My guess is this shot was a file photo taken earlier in the year when the temperatures were a bit warmer. It does not look like December in Indiana.
