Classic view of the Monaco harbor and a large portion of the race circuit. First run in 1929, 1973 saw a major change to the circuit with the addition of the swimming pool complex. The start/finish was to the left of the trees and the track climbs up to the Casino via the aqueduct in the center of the image. The Hotel de Paris is the building with the blue roof on the center/right. The track makes a quick left turn and then right to start the descent back to the waterfront as the cars emerge from the tunnel on far right. Within hours the grandstands would be filled as they watched Jackie Stewart driving the Tyrell 006 win the race.
Before the Battle was shot the morning of the 1973 Monaco Grand Prix on Ektachrome film.
