Custodians and Champions - The Story of the City of Perth Surf Life Saving Club

£9.99

Product description

Custodians of the public safety, and champions of the surf- these are the men and women who have served the City of Perth Surf Life Saving Club in the course of its proud history.
The story of the State's largest and most powerful surf life saving club, with its passion for beach efficiency and pride in performance, is told with a breadth of vision which offers the reader insights not only into the evolution of an institution, but into the development of City Beach, the settlement of Perth's western suburbs, and the impact of economic depression, war and post-war prosperity on the lives of ordinary of Western Australians. The reminiscences contributed by pioneering members and the experiences related by their modern counterparts are skilfully woven into a sparkling narrative in which the City club's many colourful personalities are brought to life. More than a hundred fine photographs provide a marvellous glimpse into an important facet of Australia's social past.

Very good like new condition with little to no wear
