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

1978. Hang Gliding

Posted: August 28, 2018 at 12:20 pm

1978.  Hang gliding at the wall, North Cronulla.  At the time hang gliding was a new sport which allowed this man to fly, and it certainly attracted lots of attention from beachgoers.  Even the seagull looks surprised.  Tim Vanderlaan photo.
