Beautiful Bondi – 1926

It’s not often we get a glimpse such as this of the generation before ours, and partway into it I watched those kids coming out of Bondi Public and heading for the beach – looking for the ones with no shoes, then I looked at their sun-bitten faces and saw Bondi written all over them.

Then there was the babes … and a handy demo of toothpick directionals. The Palatial Bondi Hotel. The kid who wouldn’t get out of the panorama beach shot. A beach inspector telling two grown men wrestling in the sand to pull their heads in. It’s all here …

No sound.

Lifted this from Bondi Longboarders FB .. thanks for finding it.

        G’day Pete, I spoke to Andy in Hawaii last week. He’d been in hospital for a few days, but is fine now. He’s looking forward to heading back over this way as soon as he can. I said we’d have a big Arvo at Doyles and see if Mick D could be enticed to the Southside for a day. Wayne is in Victoria as you know, but you will be welcome to join , unless you are still barred from the Watto Bay !!!!! Keep well.
