653 Balmoral in the "Good Old Days"

Here, dear reader, for your enjoyment a look into the past of Balmoral Beach, brought to us by reader Bill Church ... thanks, Bill, for lending the book The Good Old Days, A Pictorial History of Australia (by Stephen Brooke, 1989 Golden Press Pty Ltd, ISBN 0 7302 0583 5). It's a collection of very interesting photographs out of archives from all over the country ... where - curiously - not a single word is said about the photographers. Anyway, enjoy ... I have much more on Balmoral.

Here are similar vistas as they present themselves today.
