Critérium des Aiglons 1932

Stage 1, Critérium des Aiglons 1932. Negotiation a closed level crossing required a bit of acrobatics. Note the variation in styles of race numbers on the bikes. Looks like a mixture of crudely hand-painted, stenciled, and neatly applied. Some are dark numbers on light background, and some are the reverse. From "Match l'Intran" No.310, 16 August 1932.
