Playing at the shallow end of the pool. This is a very late shot. Notice the extended concrete wall and wooden barrier. Was just a sand area into the water and until the bridge was built on top of the weir it required a long walk around to for the kids who could no swim.

Canoe race at the swimming carnival. Notice the wonderful use kids made of a piece of corrugated iron. Boys used to seal the folds with a bit of cloth, or those with a bit more cunning used a bit of tar. Probably removed from the single bitumen into Fairbridge.
