Documentary | It was more fun when it was illegal.
Some images from a recent two-up game on the outskirts of Kalgoorlie.
The title of this post – It was more fun when it was illegal – is a quote from the man in the gallery who is wearing a fur hat (I didn’t get his name unfortunately). We hat a chat for a while, and he happily regaled me with tales of bush two-up, when the lookout would run in yelling “COPPERS!” and they’d all bolt off into the surrounding bush. No women were allowed, or cameras, he said, and was quick to reassure me it was ok to take photos these days. He had a laugh when he was remembering how a local judge was busted one time.
