9. Pizza Hunt: One man’s global search for the shells of the Pizza Huts of the past

www.hohaitran.com

“Pizza Hunt is a photographic record of my journey to find the iconic Pizza Hut restaurants that were erected in their thousands in the 1970s, 1980s and 1990s. The book will feature a carefully curated selection of these original dine-in ‘huts’. Today, only a handful of these huts remain and they now have second lives as grocery stores, pawnshops, gospel churches, liquor stores and funeral homes, among other things. 

Since capturing my first hut I have travelled over 14,000kms between Australia, New Zealand and the USA in pursuit of them all.”

13. The Punt Gun

The ‘punt gun,’ used to be somewhat common among commercial waterfowl hunters.

What’s so special about this gun? It is capable of killing upwards of 50-100 birds in a single shot. They were too heavy and the recoil too strong for a hunter to fire them by hand. Instead, they were (usually) mounted to small, often flat bottomed, boats known as ‘punts.’
