The horse track in Aarhaus Denmark was given over to the sport of motor(cycle) racing in the 1950’s. Included on this Speedway Life page are racing programs, photographs, and race results.

Art, Images, and Design
Arrested Motion’s best photos of the ROA show in LA at Thinkspace. The work on accordioned reclaimed doors is good.
The Sherlock Holmes stories were not the only thing that A. Conan Doyle wrote. The Arthurian romance “The White Company” was illustrated by N.C. Wyeth and published by David McKay in 1922.

As a teaser I’m giving you this behind‐the‐scenes from Season 1. (NSFW unless you are a zoologist.)
