Betty Boop at Coolangatta by aussiebushstick


Available to buy on…

This photo was taken inside an old caravan, when “Cooly Rocks On” was called “Wintersun” in Coolangatta, SE Queensland. The celebration is for everyone who enjoys Rock-N-Roll memorabilia from the 50’s & 60’so; hot cars, great music and bits of this & that from the past.

Betty Boop was created by Max Fleischer. Her first appearance was August 9th 1930 in the cartoon “Dizzy Dishes”. She actually began as a caricature of the sexy, coy flapper and singer, Helen Kane who had risen to fame in the late 1920’s. The “Boop-Oop-A-Doop!” Betty Boop was toned down in the mid 1930’s to appear more demure. (There is so much more written about her but these few notes came from Wikipedia & Britannica Online Encyclopedia).

Camera details: Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZI
f2.8, 1/400sec, ISO 80, 5mm. No flash.
