Gillian’s Found Photo #48

This week’s found photo is like a Gidget movie or Beach Boys tune come to life. It’s amazing, there really was a time like that. When all a kid had to care about was the sun, the beach, mating rituals and rock’n’roll. These days you can get shot trying to surf the wrong beach in Southern California, and you won’t find Dick Dale and his Del-Tones or Eddie & the Showmen at the Rendezvous Ballroom. Where did it all go wrong? And do you think any of these kids ended up at the Spahn Ranch a few years later?
