History of Bay on show

This photograph of the sec- ond of the two Byron Bay jet- ties will be one of the 50 on show at the Byron Bay Pho- tographic Exhibition at the Byron Bay Surf Club starting next Friday. The photographs, tracing the cultural heritage of the town, have been collected by Peter Duke and each of them has a story written about them. The exhibition can be viewed from 11 am to 6 pm from January 7 to 12, 18 to 23 and 25 to 30. Mr Duke hopes to eventu- ally have the photographs housed permanently in a By- ron Bay museum.
