Bondi Flashback 1890

Bondi Flashback to 1890 children swimming at Bondi Beach South end Sydney

This photograph of summer bathing at Bondi shows children enjoying the shallows around the rocky area at the southern end of the beach.

Besides a large group of people enjoyed the water, not a lot compares with the same area today. Though check out that girl at front left exposing skin below the knee – downright scandalous.

The photo, part of the Tyrrell Collection at the Powerhouse Museum, was taken by Henry King (1855-1923), a successful Sydney photographer.
