Circuit de Mans - August 4 1913
Photographs of traditional and especially new sport events and Physical Culture were very popular in the beginning of the twentieth Century. Famous photo-icons of sports where made by Jacques Henri Lartigue (1894 - 1986) in his childhood.

These icons often depict the rise of motorcar racing as seen in the competitions organized by the A.C.F., Automobile Club de France. Another new spectacular devellopment, one of the oldest Dreams of Mankind, was the
dawn of aviation, also seen in Lartigue's images.

Less famous but historically equally informative are the photographs by M. Rol depicting the same spectacular motorcar races and early aviation experiments, often taken at the same spot where Lartigue was active.


The current page depict some vintage images of motorcar racing by M. Rol.
The image on the left brings us back to the Circuit de Mans in August 1913.
Title: Vue generale du Pesage.
