This photograph shows Churchill Downs' Kentucky Derby, 1943. War-time travel restrictions resulted in a "Street Car Derby" with no out-of-town tickets to the race sold. But 65,000 turned out to see Count Fleet, a 2-5 choice, win easily. The restrictions also resulted in Keeneland holding its 1943 and 1944 meets at Churchill. The photograph is printed using Epson premium glossy archival paper (260 gsm). The detail on the final product is excellent. Our photographs originate from the National Archives, various federal archives as well as state and city historical archives here in the Pacific Northwest and our own collection of vintage and antique photographs and maps.
