The day in 1965 when the Hell's Angels visited Bakersfield and stopped by the storied Blackboard Cafe on Chester Avenue
These historic photos, taken by photographer Billy Ray (shown in the first picture) capture the day in 1965 when the Hell's Angels of San Bernadino visited Bakersfield. Locals will notice the Blackboard Cafe on Chester Avenue as well as Hart Park. Billy Ray traveled with the Hell's Angels for a month on assignment for Life magazine (the photos are owned by Time/Life) but apparently they were never published, which is a shame. The photos are available in the book 'Hells Angels of San Berdoo ’65 | Inside the Mother Charter.' Enjoy.
