A Day At The Beach

The photograph above is from the collection of Ces Richards of Mt Colah and records a 1947 visit to Queenscliff. A day trip to the beach was a regular outing for the  Berowra and District Younger Set  during the 1940’s and was possible because of the generosity of Bill Erskine, the local iceman, and his Chevrolet truck.

Some of those on the beach that day with Ces (seated between the two men standing at the back) are Doreen Dorsman, Jim Hatfield, Joyce Thompson, Ken Rowles, Heather Simpson, Len Frost, Ray Fitzgerald, Eric Frost, Peggy Thompson, Freddy Hatfield, Arnold Hamilton, Bob Thompson,and Geoff Doherty.

Do you recognise anyone else in the photograph? Please tell us their names.
