BO-51-238 : Brighouse Race Track
This is what was left of the Brighouse Race Track in Richmond from 1951. Brighouse was originally called Minoru Race Track when it first opened in 1909. It closed in 1914 when the first world war began and reopened in 1920 as Brighouse. It operated for 22 seasons until finally closing forever in 1942 when wartime gas rationing forced all racing to be transferred to Hastings Park. The track was covered in 1965 when Richmond Center began construction. I believe the intersection in the photo is No 3 Road and Cook Road, although it’s possible that it’s No 3 and Park Road.
