Cover image: The image of two boys holding hands in a Chippendale lane, Sydney, accompanied a front-page article, ‘Racial discrimination – what’s that?’ just days before the 1967 referendum. The boys have been identified as Victor Hookey (left) and Mark Anthony. When the Sydney Morning Herald tracked down Hookey 40 years later, he admitted the photo was staged: the boys weren’t found holding hands, but had been holding out their hands asking for money, after wagging school together.
