Robin Morrison Highway 61 photos
I found these photos by NZ photographer Robin Morrison on the Auckland Museum website, here and here respectively. I was working on something else entirely when these came up, not even motorcycle related. These photos, and certain other things that have come up recently in regard to issue #2 of head Full of Snakes, have made me realise how impossible it is to look at the history of motorcycling in NZ without talking/thinking about the motorcycle clubs/gangs that were such a big part of the culture for quite a while. Anyway I'm really interested in what Robin Morrison was doing with the Highway 61s here. Did he do a whole project on them? Had he seen Danny Lyons book? No doubt. Has anyone seen anymore of these?
