There's some great news from Council this week that announces the Taylor Point Baths works to replace the decking and netting for the swimming enclosure have been completed. The news brings into sharp relief how long the beach coves on the Pittwater estuary from Stokes Point to Taylor's Point have been a place for people to enjoy.
Although mostly inaccessible until the first land subdivisions necessitated the first roads being built to those blocks of land, once they were installed, and holiday homes and campers accessing the beach areas with tents and children in tow, and some living permanently in these places, the presence of sharks in the estuary meant residents requested a safe area or 'baths' to swim in.
ROAD CONSTRUCTION. Tenders are invited for the Clearing and Forming of about 25 Chains of Roads between Taylor's Point and Clareville, Pittwater, Shire of Warringah. TENDERS CLOSE on WEDNESDAY, 21st instant. No tender necessarily accepted. Plans and Specifications may be inspected at the office of Arthur Rickard and Co., Ltd.. Rickard House.64 Pitt-street. Sydney. Tenders to be addressed; Surveyor, Box 2524, G. P.O., Sydney. Advertising. (1923, March 17). The Sydney Morning Herald(NSW : 1842 - 1954), p. 12. Retrieved from http://nla.gov.au/nla.news-article16062331
Warringah Shire Council records show that at a letter was forwarded from the Avalon Beach and Progress Association in February 1933 was 'resubmitting a request for a pile and netting baths to be placed alongside Clareville wharf', however at a Meeting held on the 10th of June 1935, the President Stated he proposed to direct the Engineer to furnish an estimate for the construction of baths alongside Taylors Point wharf, the residents being prepared to contribute towards the cost.
At a Meeting held on the 6th of February 1940, the Taylor's Point Protective Assoc., were stating the Association is prepared to provide £7.10.0-towards the cost of erecting hand-rails and a platform around the baths at Taylor's Point. To which Council Resolved, - That £15, as estimated by the Engineer, be voted for the work, provided the Association contributes £7.10.0.
This would be the first version of the 2020 edition of the Taylors' Point Baths with a platform running alongside the enclosure.
By August 1947 the baths needed repairs.
The waters off Taylor's Point have been popular since at least the 1930's was shown when Taylor's Point resident Roger Wickins found a 1934 beer bottle in during his usual clean ups of the area when doing his daily snorkelling. It was one of several old beer bottles Mr. Wickens has taken back out of the estuary.

Collector's Corner Resch's Beer Art - A Reflection Of Australiana Now Worth Thousands - As we head into warmer weather palate cleansing ales and wine spritzers become more and more popular - as do the places we sup such sips. The decoration of such corners has led many a collector of the Australiana to indulge in favourite posters depicting favourite sports or landscape scenes with a beer type or maker. Nowadays beer posters and mirrors done by our early commercial artists, who were often successful and sought after portrait artists or worked in other artistic fields as well, are fetching hundreds for prints, and even thousands of dollars for an original. It's not just beer posters either, fruit, travel, anything that is rare or Australian is fetching good prices - so don't throw out those old 1920's to 1950's flour bags or promotional material just yet!

Food Salad Season: Whole Meals In A Bowl Ideas Spring and Summer lightness prompts us to go easier on the big Winter meals and opt for some less heavy fare. The whole meal in a bowl idea combines enough protein for energy, whole grains, and a range of nuts, seeds and colourful vegetables. For a 'balanced bowl' aim to have half your ingredients as leafy greens and vegetables, one quarter allocated to protein and one quarter to complex carbohydrates. Your body also needs some oils so if you're not taking a supplement to boost your Vitamin D use the olive oil you make bake vegetables in as a base for your salad dressing. There are also some great options in the whole world of food we now live in to add taste, think ground and fresh spices, dried and fresh herbs, lemon, lime, onion, garlic, chilli, vinegar, mustard, nutritional yeast, miso, pepper and a little sea salt. If using store bought sauces and condiments, choose those lower in sodium, salt and sugar. We promise you, after a few weeks on a clean, whole diet you will feel 100% better and have energy to burn.
