This month’s site, Prairie Street Art, features the work of Chicago-based photographer Ron Nelson, whose wide recognition includes having examples of his photography on permanent display at Soldier Field and Halas Hall, the public and private homes of the NFL’s Chicago Bears. Of interest to us, however, are his images from auto racing in the ’50s and ’60s at places like Meadowdale, Elkhart Lake, Watkins Glen, Indianapolis, and Milwaukee.
These are readily accessed from a column of selection buttons along the left side of the home page, buttons that take you to galleries covering Sports Cars, Indy/Champ Cars, the Scarab and Elva marques, the Meadowdale circuit, and Formula One at Watkins Glen. While ultimately not comprehensive for the period, many excellent views are still waiting patiently to be found by those who take the time to look for them. There is also, as you might expect, a gallery for Da Bears.
