Lambton Quay beatniks

Lambton Quay beatniks

This cartoon shows several bearded beret-wearing beatniks leaning against a lamp post outside a coffee bar on Lambton Quay, Wellington. The caricature reflected the fact that, following the example of beats in the United States and Britain, a few young people in Wellington and Auckland did adopt the beat lifestyle, which involved experimenting with marijuana.
