Regatta - Greasy Pole - c1964

Date Added: 18 May 2006 Contributor: Arthur Bird Year: 1964 Picture No: 1660

A regular event at the Regatta, you could win a salmon if you could get to the end of the pole and grap it.

Swimming costume fashions seem to have changed a bit!

Groups: Bird Family Cine Film - early 1960s

Sue is it not Sids brother Alastair Maclean? Sid would only be 14 or 15 at the time. Comment left on 25 May 2006 at 20:38 by Margaret Cassie ( Clelland )
