Sportsmen: The Wright Street Swimming Club

Between 1931 and 1938 a member of the Wright Street Swimming Club (which evidence suggests was on the beach at Middle Park or Albert Park) prepared an occasional newsletter which was apparently displayed at the Club's headquarters. The first few issues had the title “The Crab” while later numbers were called “Pimpo”. A collection of these unusual fragments of social history was purchased by the Library in 1985.
