March 14th 1951
A newspaper cutting from Page 3 of “The Age” the following morning
Three country Victorian girls who had spent the previous year at Bendigo Teachers’ College .
But here they are on a beach at St Kilda in Melbourne on a warm Wednesday afternoon.
Where should they have been ?
Once upon a time I knew the answer to that question but now I’ve forgotten.
But girls in bathing suits, a beach and in this case an unseen newspaper photographer bears some similarity to another 1951 photo taken at Bondi Beach in Sydney and used as this week’s prompt by Sepia Saturday.
Further interpretations of Sepia Saturday’s photo can be seen here .
