This awesome photo was taken on December 26, 1975 by an unnamed staff photographer at the Denver Post. They did however, record that the skateboarder David Beans, age 13 was unhurt. This is an excellent photograph, made even more so by the date of the photo, the day after Christmas. You know this was probably a Christmas gift being put through the paces. I hope David stuck with it. It’s sort of on sale at Ebay right now. I mean “sort of” because it’s not an actual photographic print, but an early form of photo fax used by newspapers. So $28 bucks get’s you a fancy photocopy. I wonder what Mr Beans is doing now?
