Hi Gel Boy and welcome!
Seeing as they'd brought you in especially, did they ask you to look or act in a different or specific way? Or did you just wander past the hippes a few times til he got the right shots?

Great pics by the way.

What's the story about those ID bracelets?
I remember them being big in the 80s too among teenagers in general, worn plain or with a name.
Was it terrace-related, like some joke on being prepared incase one went to the hospital unconscious? Did you guys get them engraved?
