1978. Hang Gliding

Posted: August 28, 2018 at 12:20 pm

1978.  Hang gliding at the wall, North Cronulla.  At the time hang gliding was a new sport which allowed this man to fly, and it certainly attracted lots of attention from beachgoers.  Even the seagull looks surprised.  Tim Vanderlaan photo.

Big Hair

Posted: August 28, 2018 at 12:14 pm

Mid 70’s. BIg hair, was all the rage in the seventies.  If you could grow it, you would and the longer the better.  Funny to think, 40 years on and this guy would be lucky if he was sprouting more than a couple of hairs on his head.  Tim Vanderlaan Photo.
