That guardrail was indeed as hazardous as it appears, though partly "sheltered" by the pit wall (not visible on the right, but making a hit from the racing line rather improbable). What is more surprising and almost shocking, is the fact that there was a guardrail at all! Which other circuit sported such safety luxury in the fifties?

Thanks for the link. This photo certainly caught my attention. Was that guardrail over the creek as insufficient and blunt-ended as it appears in this photo, or was it set diagonally to the track so that it would be at least marginally beneficial?
