Boozefighters taking a break.
This is one of my favorite photos. It depicts Teri Forkner, Vern Autrey and Fat Boy Nelson. It's my understanding that the photo was taken in Hollister in 1947 at the 4th of July event, but was the newspaper picture for the 1948 Riverside "scandal." Either way it is a great shot that captures a moment in time that I wish I could attend. I often wonder if in sixty years people will see Wingnut photos and wish they were there. Naw..they will say, "Those guys are gay!"
