The above photograph is from the collection of Ces Richards of Mt Colah
It features L-R Joyce Church,Reggie Ivanoff, Joyce Thompson and Ken Rowles posing together on a c1946 day out to Collaroy Beach. Behind the foursome on the grassy reserve campers can be seen and note the stump with B TIDY painted on it just to Ken’s right !
Such day trips were regular outings for the Berowra and District Younger Set during the 1940’s. They were possible due to the generosity of the local iceman, Bill Erskine and his Chevrolet truck. The day trippers, girls first, all boarded the truck using a low ladder.
The younger set included people from Berowra, Cowan, Mt Kur-ringai, Mt Colah, Asquith & Hornsby & was active for about 5 years.
Another photo of the Younger Set on Queenscliff beach can be seen in my earlier blog of November 9,2012 . . . A Day at the Beach
