A few images from the 1920s depicting rampant inflation in Germany, the 'swinging' advent of jazz, Charles Lindbergh's first solo crossing of the Atlantic and the SSK Mercedes, which served as a sports/GP/road car.
Never been to Monaco for the race, but did visit in 1994 when we had some spare time putting a trade show stand in at the tax free world exhibition in Cannes.
Did a lap of the circuit in a lwb high roof turbo diesel transit and parked it french style. Walked the track and was amazed at the elevation up to Casino Square from the start, the drop down to the tunnel was equally impressive, looks nothing on TV. Nice lunch in the Italian overlooking the drop from Casino Square, jus by where they swerve to avoid the manhole cover, not too expensive in October, fortunately.
Further to your point above, Ferry Porsche was given a large sum of cash each morning during the 1920s to enable him to pay his tram fare to school. Inflation was so out of control that he rarely had sufficient to fund the return journey.
