McIver Portrait Photos

A Different Look at the Faces Who Made Racing History in the Northeast

     Each section of the region I cover on this site has one or more photographers  whose work has served to preserve  the pre- Catamount Stadium racing history of that section. Around Fairmont, it was Bob Frazier; around Airborne, it was Bob Mackey; around Thunder Road, it was Bob Doyle; in New York, there was McDowell, Bergh, and King; and in the Northeast Kingdom of Vermont - it was Norman McIver.
   
I first saw the photographic work of Norman McIver from racing archivist Cho Lee. These are all portrait - type shots, and many of them are from the George Barber collection. George should certainly be in one of these, as the Dean of Northeast Racing, but he is not. Norman was one of the only guys to do drivers in portraiture like this.
