A photographic postcard of Bob Burman in a Peugeot car. The Peugeot family started manufacturing cars in France during the 1890s. They were an early pioneer in car racing. Robert Burman (April 23, 1884 - April 8, 1916) was an American race car driver. He was killed in 1916 during a road race when his open cockpit Peugeot car rolled over. Burman's races were often printed in the Rockford, Illinois newspapers.
