Five Stages Of Inebriation, ca.1863-1868 / Photographer Charles Percy Pickering

Stage 1: The Sober Stage

Stage 2: The Buzz

Stage 3: The Party Stage

Stage 4: The Downfall

Stage 5: Regret

Dated from period of Pickering’s location at 612 George Street
The photographs illustrate drunkenness in five stages, played by a male subject in a studio. Possibly commissioned by a local temperance group for educative purposes, the photographs may also have been used by an engraver for illustrations. The penultimate frame of the drunk in a wheelbarrow resembles S.T. Gill’s watercolour ‘Ease without Opulence’, 1863 (PXC 284/30). In 1866, NSW Premier James Martin introduced the Drunkard’s Punishment Bill — notes by Curator of Photographs, 2007. The printed studio mark on reverse reads “Photographic Artist. C. Pickering, 612 George Street, near Wilshire’s Buildings, Sydney”

Ralf Holleis’ 3D printed track bike takes a straight tube of carbon Fibre, and jams it into a titanium lug. The result is visually stunning. The potential applications are even more so. As Hollies states on his website, after you determine the riders anatomical measurements, you can use software to configure the geometry and the sizing of the bike. Also when using steel, the tubes don’t need to be butted as there is no welding involved.
