Midway ’76

Posted: January 28, 2019 at 11:00 am

Winter 1976. Midway. Photo taken just opposite John Davey Ave, when the Marram Grass had just been planted. Back then the beach was a gentle slope to the water, but now over 40 years later, the level of the frontal dune is way higher than the road level. Still reckon the waves back then were better than now. Tim Vanderlaan Photo.midway 76envelope48

Storms would regularly blow sand over the road and up into the park. The Littlo’s house, and the other houses along this side of Mitchell Rd were demolished soon after this photo. Tim Vanderlaan Photo
