Flint Photos: Knife-Wielding Thugs in Bassett Park
Thankfully, I've completely forgotten the circumstances that led me to be photographed in Bassett Park in 1975 wearing a pink polyester shirt, flexing my chicken-bone arms, and biting a very large knife with my very large teeth. This was during the "Gangs of Flint" era, so it may have been some sort of initiation ritual. Only one thing is certain: I was no longer getting buzz cuts at Johnny's Barber Shop on Lewis Street.
The home of Mr. and Mrs. Fink is on the far left, and the house Dave McDonald eventually bought is on the far right.
