AUGUST ISSUE 2018
On New Year’s Day 1976 LA residents woke to the iconic Hollywood sign looking a little different. A group of young locals had modified the sign simply by hanging white and black sheets to ensure no permanent damage on the much loved icon . Whilst Danny Finegood is often reported as being the ringleader of the group it is little known that iconic surfboard shaper Steve Brom was one of the pack, not just on this modification but 3 more times after this , including “Holy Wood” and the never photographed “Oil war” as a comment on the gulf war . #historyfriday #hollywood #hollyweed #losangeles
These colder mornings have been creating some stunning moments on our coastline. This shot sees an almost unrecognisable Lion Island at the mouth of the Hawkesbury river . Image 📷 by central coast photographer @jimpicot

N18. Tony Edwards - giving some context to the time his infamous comic strip Captain Goodvibes existed in - Circa 1970s “There was something in the air at the time ... He (Whitlam) pulled us out of Vietnam and released the draft dodgers from jail, so all of a sudden there were these young people who were actually quite proud to be Australian “.
