NIGHT OWL GAY BAR (ca. early-1960s) Photo

$2,000.00

Np; [ca. early-1960s] Vintage original 5 x 3 7/8″ (13 x 10 cm.) black-and-white print still photo, with marginal tears and creases, very good-.

An extremely scarce example of a photo of a gay male couple (notice how they are standing, with one man’s knee right up against the other’s knee) in the Night Owl, clearly a gay bar. Although both the place and date are not known, the men’s hairstyles are clearly those of the early 1960s or earlier.

Photos of same sex couples have in recent times been the subjects of various books. They were always, for obvious reasons, very scarce, but to find such a photo in a gay bar is exceedingly scarce.
