My Grandfather in Motorcycling 1918

These pictures attempt to show what is really a long framed pictured that hangs in my house. It is approximately 3 feet long and shows a 1918 motorcycle rally (Annual Gypsy Tour) in Turkey Run State Park, Indiana. My Grandfather is pictured as a solo rider. My Grandfather was an immigrant from Syria in the early 1900’s and went on to open and manage a Chevrolet car dealership in Fort Wayne Indiana. I take it has a sign that motorcycles was to play a part in my life.
