Jim Murphy The barn circa 85
one night (’85 or ’86) my older brother Bob went to a club (“Area”) in NYC. Unknowingly, he began to chat with a world famous 1970’s pro skateboarder. Bob told him we had a Ramp in our Barn and invited him out to the country for some fresh air. Soon after, New York City’s godfather of skateboarding, Jeremy Henderson and his crew (Popo, Puppet Head, Pepe and Eileen on roller skates) showed up.
>Here is a shot (taken from the beam) of Jeremy (Henderson) doing a super smooth BS pivot grind (or air to grind), with his shoes untied and a broken L wrist. I was slamming on my hip so much, that one day they showed up with an old pair of 1970’s padded Molly’s skate shorts for me. They looked stupid, but worked great. I still have ’em. Tommy G(roholski). and Jeffy (Roenning)look on. (photo probably by Ben)==>CORNISH
