You never know what you might find when cleaning out a garage or basement.
A friend of a friend found these old, original Indianapolis 500 photos from the 1920s. The guys in these photos are some of the true pioneers of auto racing. And if Facebook and Instagram were a thing, we bet some of these photos would’ve been all over social media. As it turned out, they wound up collecting dust—until our friend’s buddy unearthed them.
Today, they get their day in the digital media spotlight. Check ’em out—most of them have their own captions handwritten on the photos. None of them appear to be selfies. Thank God.
