Default SOUP - The Photography of Bob Magill

Photography by Bob Magill & captions by Dean Adams



1. Don Emde's dad, Floyd, on the grid of the 1940 Oakland 200 mile race.


2. While those wobblers James Dean and Brando get all the press about riding bikes in the 1940s and 50s, character actor Keenan Wynn actually raced motorcycles (as did Howard Hawks). Here Wynn (with cigar) fills up for his riding pals, about sixty-odd years ago.


3. Unknown rider, unknown race. At speed.


4. Riverside, 1949.


5. Lincoln Park, date unknown.


6. Don & Marge Fera, 1940s. Back then, race bikes had hand-shifters, metal number plates and if your gal had nerve she showed just a hint of leg.

The pictures are awesome... when toughness was built through character, not created from a look.

A recent Peter Egan quote:
"... when shops had oil-stained wood floors and men didn't have tattoos unless they'd been in the Navy or Marine Corps and could fight their way out of a Shanghai gin joint."

Thanks for posting.
