Rare real photo postcard of racer Iver Lawson, men's sprint World Champion in 1904. Lawson won races against the best riders of the day including Major Taylor and Frank Kramer. Lawson's brothers John and Gus were also involved in professional cycling. John was a racer and Gus was a motor pacer for many top professionals in Europe including Bobby Walthour. Lawson was born in Sweden but resided in Utah. You can just make out his name at the bottom of the pic. It is unposted. His name is written on the back. Postcard back is divided so it is most likely 1907-1910. Condition is very good. There aren't many pictures of Lawson, certainly not as many as other cyclists of this era. A very scarce image. Asking $55. shipped to CONUS. PayPal friends/family or postal mo. PM me if interested. Thanks.
