I would like to thank that "Scotto guy" for sending me the Beach Heritage Calendar. I must admit I was up all night trying to visualize the Beach as I have known it and the vivid versions of the past. The picture of the Hamilton Yacht Club blew me away! Such a wonderfull building. The aerial pictures of the Beach in 1954 had me mesmerized. The road had obviously changed for the new bridge (the one that now stands) but where is the old Cottage Inn restaurant and the bowling alley? I was also amazed that the Hamilton bay side of the strip had at one time a great looking beach. The picture of the Buggy brigade protest was great testament to the resolve of the community that is still fighting to this day for their survival. The picture of the Lakelands Pool brought back a flood of happy memories! And, of course, the bridge where my father worked for many years (and I know certain administrators of forums work). The Beach has such a vibrant and interesting heritage I can only say that I'm very proud to be part of that past!
