Note from the Editors:
Al Shaffer is driving Miss DeSoto II, H-34– a Rich Hallett built hull.
The hydro in the background is more than likely – Miss DeSoto III, H-33 – a Henry Lauterbach built hull (and a very early one at that).
Race site is Columbus, Ohio on the Scioto River.
If anyone has a photo of the very first, Miss DeSoto, we certainly would like to see it.
