Summer Under Southern Skies – 28 Amazing Photos of Australians Playing at the Beaches in the 1930s

Australians are busy in Summer! Everyone wants to be outside, whether working or playing. Harvesting wheat, cherries for a warm Christmas with Santas sweltering in red suits, life savers on the sandy beaches, fighting the bushfires and helping those flooded by torrential summer rains, are typical jobs.

Those on summer holidays can picnic and swim at the beach, go to summer shows or just play in the backyard. Many pack the car and go "up" or "down" the coast to a holiday house...

Here below is a collection of interesting vintage photos that documented activities of Australians in summers of the 1930s.
