Rock ‘til you drop! 1960s and 1970s performers through the lens of Les Allen. Extended season!

About this event

Relive the glory days of Australian Rock and Roll with a nostalgic, photographic exhibition at Toukley Library. View rare performance photographs of legends such as Dinah Lee, Digger Revell, Johnny O’Keefe, Little Pattie, Sandy Scott and many more, all courtesy of the fantastic collection of late Gosford photographer Les Allen. 

During the 1960's and 70's Les Allen took photographs of practically every performance of every artist who played at the Central Coast Leagues Club. His collection is preserved by Central Coast Libraries and it contains unique photographs that capture the mood of the sixties and seventies. You get a real sense of the raw energy of many of these artists who went on to become household names. The collection includes Bandstand favourites, rockers and “one-hit wonders. These were the people who created the soundtrack of many lives.

No bookings required.

This exhibition is available for viewing during regular branch opening hours. Please phone 4350 1540 or visit https://www.centralcoast.nsw.gov.au/libraries/our-branches/toukley-library for currrent opening hours.
