In the early years of the 20th century Australians embraced the sea as a source of health, exercise and fun none more so than the locals at Sydneys Freshwater Beach. Freshie presents the lively history of the first hundred years of the Freshwater Surf Life Saving Club, exploring how and why the Club developed as it did, the standout characters and stories from amongst its membership, the valiant rescues, competitive highlights, the triumphs and tragedies. Lavishly illustrated with a vast array of archival photographs, the book tells both the fascinating history of a unique surf life saving club yet also reflects wider changes in the Australian social climate, from the impact of two world wars to the admission of women to full membership.
