“Santa Clara County, California. Motorcycle and Hill Climb Recreation. At the start of the course. The going gets even rougher and steeper further on. The crowd in the background is composed almost entirely of young fellows. At the bottom of the hill can be seen the parking area. Besides the automobiles, approximately 200 motorcyclists had come to this Sunday event, 04/05/1940.”
