Bare Bones

Quite unaware of the novelty of his lack of attire a naked man walked into the Hotel Darwin bar on Friday night – so our usually reliable alcoholic informant tells us and picked a fight among the clientele.

The two men he found most battle-worthy thought they might as well be in it too, and stripped off in sympathy.

Luckily for them the local police were away prowling after prowlers and shining torches in deserted doorways.

– Northern Standard (Darwin, NT) Thursday 12 March 1953


If you would like to support my work, you can leave a small ‘bar tip’ here of $2, or several small tips, just increase the amount as you like. Your generous patronage of my work and research, however small it appears to you, will greatly help me with my continuing costs.
