|Bob Hunter Photo's
We owe a debt of gratitude to Bob Hunter, who along with fellow photographers John
Grady and Fred Smith traveled to many a track in NYS recording the events for
posterity. Bob caught many a Canadian and Northern NY competitor at Watertown, he
snapped shots of the fastest Flatheads in the state at Maple Grove in Waterloo and
arguably took the best photographs of the period at the NYS State Fair in Syracuse. He
regularly caught action on the asphalt as well at Spencer and Fulton. Few realize that it
was Bob, along with his partner Adam Gass that started the Gater Racing Picture news -
indeed the 'Ter' in Gater is Bob's. Not only did he take the photo's - but he took GREAT
photos - more often than not they are well framed, with minimal of distractions in the
background, and the color composition is excellent. Arguably as nice a photograph as
was available in his time. Please enjoy this sampling of his photographs - displayed with
the permission of Kim Jennejohn - and contact Kim if you'd like some of your own.
More to come...
