Posted: July 28, 2011 at 1:10 pm

This classic photo of Gary Birdsall was taken by Jack Eden and is part of a Exhibition coming in Sept 2011…….Surf City will track Sydney’s dynamic surf scene through the 50s, 60s and 70s: spanning an amazing period of social upheaval, post war optimism, teen angst, rock and roll, prosperity, drugs and shifting cultural frontiers. We’ll feature Sydney’s surfing hubs, hot spots and cultures along with the movers and shapers who stirred the pot during these vivid and volatile years. We’ll also show what surf-crazed Sydneysiders wore, watched, made, rode, heard and read and even reveal how surfing changed Sydney. The exhibition will contain boards, movies, photos, magazines, music, clothes, everyday surf wares and treasures. So watch out for the show, coming to the Museum of Sydney in September 2011.
