We would like to periodically display photos from the vast inventory of photos in the Eastern Museum of Motor Racing collection. The displayed photos were picked by museum staff member Ben Turner who has spent many hours sorting and cataloging thousands of photos in EMMR's collection. EMMR photos are available for public viewing during museum hours.
