Our rude ancestors: Old Sydney 2

Look closely at the following photo (courtesy of Wiki Commons) taken at Bondi Beach in 1900:

See what I mean?

I hope none of them preverts are looking at this site, Hetty! Just look at that bold little minx on the left, and as for that other one on the right, that’s so disgusting, isn’t it, Kevin? The photographer should be tarred and feathered, that’s what I say!

Coogee 1900 was apparently more staid, though God only knows what might have been there in the distance!

Didn’t know Charlie Chaplin was at Coogee! What he’s been up to down on the beach I will leave to your imagination…

So rude, our ancestors were!

And note the steam tram…
