Ham, Egg & Chips
Always been a fan of Geo Ham (Georges Hamel) for his fantastic '20s and '30s automobile paintings. Came across this great little scene of a 1928 Australian dirt track race. No idea who the riders are, suffice to say they would have been hard as nails. GH started his career penning catalogue illustrations for a cyclecar manufacturer in the mid '20s but quickly became seduced by the glamour and romance of motor racing. I had no idea he had done any bike stuff - wouldn't mind some of his work on the office wall. MORE ART !
