Cousins at their grandparents enjoying a dip in the "swimming pool" - Mount Kuring-gai, NSW c. 1930s

By Mrs M Kefford
As the suburbs of Sydney expanded in the early 20th century, many young families found themselves living further from the coast, making a trip to the beach a rare treat. Despite this, swimming remained a popular summer pastime and this half water tank made an excellent makeshift swimming pool for these excited young cousins.
