’74 Storms

Posted: October 6, 2022 at 10:18 am

From our own family album. Took this photo in May ‘74 when cyclone damage was almost complete. This was the kids playground once located in Mitchel Road high above the wall. Note the monkey bars are at the bottom, and the rocket is about to end up at the bottom very soon. No holding back spectators in 1974! photo Neil Moulang courtesy Historic Cronulla Sutherland Shire.

1976 The Wanda Sand Hills

Posted: March 31, 2022 at 10:49 am

1976  The once majestic Wanda Sand hills. The sand was simultaneously extracted by a water dredge from below, and by truck and grader from above. The curved line below the grader is significant. The sand below the line was Georges River “river” sand, and above the line,  Wanda beach sand. Tim Vanderlaan Photo
