By Des Dubbelt – Playdate, May 1960

PlaydateThere are over 20 night clubs in Auckland and many of them feature floor shows. Playdate’s after-dark prowler visited some of them on a recent Saturday eve to report on the city’s sophisticated entertainment.

    I am trying to find someone who was a regular at dance clubs in auckland in the early 1960’s. St Seps and The Orange were 2 of the venues he attended. His name is/was Ray(mond), tall, skinny, blonde, blues eyes and was a good dancer. He would have been in his late teens or early 20’s at the time. If you have a database of contacts or know where old photos are from around xmas time 1962 I would appreciate any info or assistance you could provide/ Thx.
