The 60s Gay Photos of Peter English

I bought a batch of "gay photos" from an eBay dealer, who provide me with a little info on them.
He told me, "the photos are mostly from New York and the beach photos are from New Jersey
and New York.... They are all out of the estate of Peter English who was born and raised in
New York. He was raised in a Catholic family, was in the Army in the 60's and was at Fire Island
in the 60's. He was an art teacher and a illustrator, was a prolific artist and looked to have had a
very interesting life.He passed away in 2014." If anyone has more information on Peter English,
please let me know.

I thought they were worth sharing, and I tried to group them by year

1963

  

these two had writing on the back

1964

  

military time

a theory is that the photo collection may have belonged to the guy above, as he is in so many of all the shots, including the military ones

1966

  

  

  

  

  

   

above left, this guy, and his V sweater are in a number of photos

    

  

  

  

  

 

 

a blow up of the newspaper is maybe a little help in providing a place for this one...
I'm thinking "SLA" is the State Liquor Authority of NY, and of course NY has a "Daily News"

  

 

 

and, switching to color photos

  

  

  

below, Sept 1966

  

above left is the only one labeled on the back with a place, Southampton,
probably NY, on the east end of Long Island

  

  

1968

  

  

  

 

 

above, labeled on the back, Martin & Peter (not sure who is who)

  

  

  

  

  

the button says "Kiss Me, I'm Irish"

  

and, my favorite...a friend of mine thinks this was taken at the Botel in Fire Island


and yes, I know this gallery as nothing to do with the focus of this website.....
