    Did you know that 2 October 1902 was a
    turning point in Australian history? It was
    the day a newspaper editor flouted the
    law by bathing at Manly in a neck-to-knee
    bathing costume in daylight – inviting arrest
    so he could challenge what now seems a
    preposterous law. Drewe’s history of our
    varied coastline includes beach-related
    anecdotes as well as history and context
    for the many wonderful photographs
    reproduced here. Bathers, surfers,
    promenaders, surf lifesavers, sunbathers –
    and especially the beach itself – are all here
    in their Australian glory.
