[COMPLETE] The Golden Age

Post by PTRACER » 1 year ago

So, it seems that we have dozens upon dozens of crashes from the 1896 - post-WWI period and fewer Grand Prix crashes from the 1920s. So let's make this another topic.

I've a mention of an accident in the 1897 Paris Trouville race, no pictures though.

A certain Mr. Viet or Viette is noted as having crashed his tricycle near Rivière-Thibouville. If my understanding is correct he was knocked out but not otherwise injured in the accident.

Found here, on pg3 around the results.

Thanks. I'm just going to concentrate on uploading the content from the forum first, then I'll move onto finding new stuff.

I'm done up to 1907. This is really, really tiring.

I'm spending hours searching through newspaper after newspaper, only to find out it was Mme. Gobron who crashed in the village of Tonnerres one day in 1904, from a photo which has no caption. I hate to have "Unknown" written in the database though.

Project completed. I may work on the American ones from the same period next, unless someone else wants to take over.

Otherwise, all non-American crashes from 1894 to 1930 should be in the database now. I guess I should look into 1930s sports cars and hillclimbing, although all British ones are already uploaded. Oh, as are all Grand Prix crashes until 1939.

There shouldn't be more than a handful to upload, probably mostly Le Mans crashes.
