Irving Loewit and His Racing Buddies abt 1932

Irving George Loewit was born Dec 31, 1923 in Youngstown, OH. He was the son of Dr. George Loewit, optometrist (1889-1962) and Sadye Friedman Loewit (1888-1968).

Irving is in the first car to the right. He is the boy in the front of the car. The boy behind him was his friend and neighbor, Norvin "Buddy" Hansburg. The boy behind him, standing, is Joe Smutzer.

Reggie Flyn is the boy standing behind the first car on the left. He was about 3 years older than the other boys.

Thanks to Norvin "Buddy" Hansburg for identifying some of the boys.

Do you recognize anyone? Please let me know.
