Thinking about The Shire–and Christmas Past…

Northern Hemisphere readers won’t find this Christmassy, but I sure do. It is also what Cronulla looked like when I was 21, and I’m afraid to say it looked much better than it does now. Overdeveloped to hell, in my opinion, though that process had begin by 1964 as you may see from that fugly unit block built far too close to the beach.



The old Cecil, though – that was another matter.

Was the photographer just lucky, do you reckon, or did he place Bikini Girl there himself? I suspect the answer is rather obvious.
