Hello I recently stumbled across a book published in 1932 and inside the cover is the name Frank E funk and a date of march 1938. I am wondering is it possible that this is or was one of his personal books? The title on the book was The questions of the cross by Edward L. Keller. If you know any thing that might help me I would appreciate it.

Do you have any information or pictures of the old cranwood race track near Cleveland Ohio during the 1930s? it was used as a horse track and an auto race track. Torn down in the 1960s on Miles Ave. turned into a shopping center. My Father raced cars for Mr, Binder, who was in the auto business, parts, and service, and owner horses raced by my dad at Cranwood, Thisledowns, and randale Park, as a Jockey.

What a wonderful history lesson for us all. The pics and text tell us a great history lesson in how racing got to where it is now. We will never be able to appreciate the primitive equipment the racers of that day had, compared to what is available now. I sometimes wonder how any racer survived when there was practically no safety equipment for them. Even the travel from track to track over back roads with no expressways was difficult. The drivers and crews are all heroes to me. God bless them.
