Artist Notes:
Peter Helck in a letter to Walter Gotschke dated January 29th 1971:

"I am sending you a little color sketch. It shows George Robertson (one of our best) on his winning 90-Simplex in the 1909 200-mile Fairmount Park road race in Philadelphia. These races were held annually from 1908 thru' 1911. Robertson also won the first, with a 40 hp Locomobile."
