Photos from Margaret

Here's some more stuff from Maragaret:

I love this picture. They're skating the little tiny drainage channel from the street to the coulee by the old dorms on (I think it's called) Lewis street.


Geg Melancon, Danny Hall, Chris Simon, George Brown, and Bernard Morris at the chicken banks in Baton Rouge.


Chris Cart during his Reality On Trial days.



These are two Baton Rouge skate zines (circa 1986/87?)



Two photos of Heith Copes. I would kill for one of those Eppic Eddie Gomez's that he's skating in the first photo where he's doing the wallie. I had a couple of those. In the second photo at the park in downtown Lafayette, I believe that's a pre-hippy-hair Heith. (Now he has edumacated hair.)


Speaking of Chris Cart, he just put up a new Toxin III myspace page. This one has music on it as well.

I don't think I ever skated those banks. I'm going to have to hit them next time I'm through there just so I can say I did.

The club is long gone. . . as you can see from the pic. . . there is nothing there. . . it was gone by the mid 80's. . .

I can't believe y'all still had a copy of the zine I did in the 80's (Dead Meat) Chicken banks still exists, but now there's a real skatepark down the road. The Sex Pistols also played at the club in the back. It became a college-jerk bar later. Made for some aggressive Fri/Sat nite sessions.
