1938 Holiday scenes from Bribie

Holiday Scenes from Bribie
January 1938

The following seven photos show people enjoying the sandy foreshore of Bribie Island more than eighty years ago!  

Swimming, fishing, boating or just sitting on the beach watching the waves roll in were activities then and are activities now.
