Art of Art's Long Island Motor Parkway Site has recommended Chronicling America as a favorite website for VanderbiltCupRaces.com. Here's Art's description of a website that provides access to many historic newpaper articles dating back to 1690:
"I know you are always looking for pertinent websites and think the following one is excellent for researching the Motor Parkway and the Vanderbilt Cup Races. Not sure if you've seen it or published it in the blog yet, but if not, you'll probably agree its very interesting and helpful - its one thing to read about history after the fact, but another thing to read what was published about history as it was being written. Its part of the Library of Congress/National Endowment for the Humanities program.
Art, I agree it is a wonderful site and will head to the Favorite Website section. Thanks for the suggestion!
