'll be working on these 1927-30 Trotter and Pacer magazines through the
winter.
Most of the subjects are simply too old for most folks interest.
In addition the majority of the published images are terrible quality, having been published on a comic-book-like paper.

from the same Sept 1, 1927 Trotter and Pacer
Aurora, Ill 1927
Temporary link removed

John Hervey wrote the following in 1936:

"The Aurora track, originally built for harness racing but now owned and operated for the runners solely, originally a half-mile course, was later enlarged to a full-mile. Owing to the shape of the tract of land upon which it lies, however, it was found necessary, in enlarging it, to make it of unusual shape, with two very short turns and two very long stretches. The upper turn is especially short and on that account the last quarter is practically straight-away, the horses not passing the pole at that station until they have swung for home."
