PARADISE BEACH by Larry Butterworth

Currently unavailable for purchase

This is a 1949 Ford Woody and it showed the years of wear, looked liked it had never had a thing done to it and the weather and time had shaped it into thing of beauty. The surf stickers I think date back to the fifties making it a real surf museum on wheels and also a few bullet holes to add some excitement. Encinitas California

    super shot and pov, interesting with all the stickers, perfect setting, great in b/w … I don’t think I knew they had woodies back in ’49 !

  • Thanks Carol, ya woodies go back even further, I am not exactly sure but maybe the thirties.

    Nice angle and framing! Great catch! There was a Roller Skater in Sydney who used to put stickers on the Windows and even the Paintwork of his car.

  • Thanks James, this woody had every imaginable sticker about surfing.

    Yep, woodies go back to the late 30s and were popular again for a while in the late 40s and early 50s after the war. Love the bullet holes. As you so rightly said, a surf museum on wheels. Love it.
