Crash Thompson Redux: 1940

Crash Thompson Redux: 1940

Guy posed with a car that says Crash Thompson. Another photo posted here about a month ago shows the side of the car which says Death Defying Thrill Driver. Probably Crash, possibly not. Untitled and undated photo at Library of Congress, but from data with other photos in the collection scanned at the same time by LOC, it was possibly taken in 1940 by John Vachon at the Firemen's Convention, Sturgeon Bay, Wisconsin. Farm Security Administration - Office of War Information Photograph Collection. Old photograph provided by LOC. Original Medium: nitrate negative.
