About the Photos

Our holdings include hundreds of glass and film negatives/transparencies that we've scanned ourselves; in addition, many other photos on this site were extracted from reference images (high-resolution tiffs) in the Library of Congress research archive. (To query the database click here.) They are adjusted, restored and reworked by your webmaster in accordance with his aesthetic sensibilities before being downsized and turned into the jpegs you see here. All of these images (including "derivative works") are protected by copyright laws of the United States and other jurisdictions and may not be sold, reproduced or otherwise used for commercial purposes without permission.

Devil's Dozen: 1961

Devil's Dozen: 1961

My father is the middle-most biker with the somewhat ill-fitting sunglasses, and the photo was taken in 1961 in Newcastle, NSW, Australia. Dad was seventeen at the time and had run away from home. He joined a traveling carnival, ended up working in a circus, then took up with a group of bikers. I think these were the Devil's Dozen. From memory, that leather jacket was stolen and it was the police that discovered this who sent him back on his way home to Bathurst, NSW. View full size.
