John Mantle, Rusty Miller and Richard Harvey, three directions, one passion, surfing. Through the golden era of the 60’s and 70’s, they shaped, photographed and painted to record their lifestyle through a special time. Yesterday is an exhibition celebrating their different directions. Rusty’s photography, capturing the moods of the 1960’s and 70’s in Hawaii and Australia and now his images are morphed into Turning Point, Rusty’s first book. John has been a part of the surfboard manufacturing industry world wide, working with many notable shapers and surfers and is now focusing his energies on classic Hawaiian timber surfboards and single fins. Richard has a small studio on the Gold Coast and spends his time shaping, painting and teaching the lost art of handcrafting surfboards. We are sure you will enjoy the work of these three surfers who truly lived the golden era that was Yesterday. The evening was opened by the inimitable Dave Rastovitch.

Pretty sure you wouldn’t have seen this little gem. Snapper Rocks to Rainbow Bay, Greenmount and Kirra on the Gold Coast.
This 110 year old hand coloured postcard is part of the “Coloured Shell Series” printed in Germany.
It is addressed to Miss Archdall. “The Baun” Bundaberg with a one penny Queensland stamp.
If you live up that way and have any info on “Miss Archdall” I would love to know.
