I read with interest the article on the Motor Monarchs of Ventura (Where it All Began, March 2018), as I knew I had pictures of this car and crew. I have always thought I took these pictures at Cordova, Illinois, and kept them with my photos from the 1959/1960 World Series of Drag Racing. When I got these photos out to compare them, I discovered something strange. They did not match the other photos from Cordova, which all have the date on the margin. Then I studied the background of these photos and saw things that do not look like Cordova: railcars, industrial buildings, and desert type vegetation. I do know I took these photos somewhere, I just can’t remember where.
