[ca. 1977-1985]. Collection of 45 photographs, ranging in size from approximately 3" by 5" to 8" by 10" (24 B&W and 21 color), with accompanying 4pp. of typed press correspondence. Several prints with notations or photographer stamps to verso. About near fine overall. (Item ID: 21846)

Small archive of photos from the files of Auto Media Associates, an automotive publisher based in Yonkers, NY. The collection was originally gathered for publication in a book titled RACY LADYS, which sadly never reached publication. The included press release, a solicitaion for submissions, lists AMA's criteria: "the only prerequisite is that [the images] contain a woman of any age of a feminine theme, i.e. a driver's wife knitting or knitting sitting on top of tools, tires, etc. [sic]." The 1970s and 80s were a notable period for women in auto racing, including notably the early career of racer Lyn St. James, who won numerous awards during the period. St. James' own press release and photo, on her own letterhead, is included in the lot. Along with several other photos of female racers, including one Inez Muhle, the collection emphasizes women's role as spectator or cheerleader at races. A provocative array of photos, and a revealng record.
