Lawrence O. “Hughie” Hughes Auto Racing Photo Collection

“Hughie” Hughes raced the outlaw circuits of Nebraska Kansas and Iowa from 1922 to 1934.  The photos were preserved by his son Ed Hughes of Wilsonville OR. Ed generously donated the photo collection to the NWVS and approved display on our website in order to share them with the public in honor of his father.  Bob Lawrence hosted several of the photos on his wonderful Race Cars of the 20’s and 30’s website (be sure to browse his site and  links). Most of the captions were authored by Bob.  The photos give a clear picture of a racer’s life in the 1920s. Primitive race cars primitive haulers camping… a far cry from today but probably a lot more fun. If you recognize people in the photos or have other photos please tell us.
