Jedd, If the date is correct....This isindeed a remarkable photo. TheTriumph with a girder front end andthat Indian going at it........ Blind Melon
The date is correct and this comes from a very reliable source.
Blind MelonThat is actually a Norton with a girder front end on it. How do I know this? Well because it is none other than Ted Evens, 13 Rebels M.C.Take careJackpot, National Vice President13 Rebels M.C.est. 1937
Dear Mr. Jackpot, Blind Melon is talking about the Triumph in the background w/girder front fork. The man in the foreground is astride a 1940 (check small metal emblem on tank)Indian Sport Scout. Check Linkert carb between cylinders, girder front forks, single bolt mount for handlebars in middle, tanks w/caps on both, brake lever, rims, footboards, etc. The Ghost
Behind Ted is a rider name Boo Boo Pearson to the right is Pop Cougler.
Do I get brownie points?
Ed you don't get brownie points for that. You get brownie points for sending me the picture. thank you dad as well for letting us use it.
Ok. I did a little research and the picture is correct. Not that I doubted it. The photo was taken at Southern Ascot. The dead give away is the railroad bridge. Southern Ascot operated from 1936 to 1942. It was located between the modern 710 FWY and Atlantic Bl next to the LA river.
Side note. In total there were five "Ascot" parks in Los Angeles from 1904 to 1990.
