A racing team advertising Puente Gas pose next to their Peugeot in 1914. Ed Berman appears to be the man on the right.
In November of 1914, Berman’s Peugeot competed in the Corona Road Race in Southern California. His driving partner, Eddie Rickenbacker (not pictured), later became the United States’ leading WWI fighter ace.
Berman did not live long. He was killed in a racing accident while competing in the Corona Road Race in 1916.
