Corsair Bay, Labour Day..

“Labour Day 1953.  It’s too cold for swimming that’s why we are wearing our coats.  It was a family ritual that we started our beach visits between Labour Day and Easter regardless of the weather.”

Apparently a cold spring in 1953 as well.

Christchurch City Libraries has been running an annual Photo Hunt in conjunction with the city’s Heritage Week since 2008.  The 2016 Photo Hunt is running again from 1 – 31 October. During the month of October we will be posting a series of images from earlier Photo Hunts.
