BONDI JITTERBUG

State Library of NSW

 

The work of amateur photographer, champion jitterbug dancer and Bondi local George Caddy was displayed for the first time in this exhibition of 60 photographs. These distinctive photographs document Bondi Beach during the late 1930s and early 1940s and feature parading lifesavers, leisure seekers wearing the latest beach fashions and the astonishing gymnastic feats known as ‘beachobatics’.
