The Junior Drag Race Photograph Collection (1958-1962, undated) contains approximately seventy five mostly black-and-white photographs featuring images of children participating in drag race events; as well as images of children sitting in small drag race cars (junior dragsters) in residential areas; images of children posing with trophies; and photos of families and portraits. A few of the images have handwritten descriptions indicating first place winners, and events such as a 'trophy dash'. A few of the cars featured in the images have logos, numbers, and drivers' names written on the side, such as "Jess Jimenz Jr.", "Long Beach Exchange Club", "Alvin's Comet", and "GEE BEE SPL". Also included is what appears to be a page taken from a magazine featuring a brief article entitled "Lawndale in Review" which includes images from a drag race event.
