Children's Benefit Fair, 1947

Some of the greatest drivers of the postwar era (and their wives) gathered in 1947 for this amazing photo. The occasion? A children's benefit fair at Crawford's Market in El Monte. From left are: unknown couple; Bill and Penny Taylor; Ray and Marion Crawford; Troy Ruttman; Sam and Alice Hanks; Danny and Elsie Oakes; George Beavis and family. Thanks to Alice Hanks for sharing this gem from the past!
