 Ah, the old Mt Druitt circuit. Closed in '58 before I was thought of, but remember old timers talking of it. Devils hairpin was a good spot to watch.

Great bike shots, densely BSA, but what surprised me was seeing a malt shop culture that could have just as easily been in the heart of Los Angeles as, I suppose, Sydney or Melbourne.
