Who Were These 1959 Swimmers? – #120

The clothes and the togs might have changed but the happy faces, the concrete steps and the Four Square building haven’t. Neither have the wharf sports. Neither has the speed of our swimmers. They were fast in 1959 and they are still fast in 2012. Long may it continue. L to R Back: Jimmy Miller, -, -, –
