Underwater models of today might enjoy researching the films of Esther Williams. Hollywood movies based around synchronized pool swimming were big in the 1950′s and no expense was spared in their production. Esther was the queen of the era.
I spotted this poster at a town west of Townsville, Queensland called Ravenswood. It was 1978 so the poster is unlikely to be still on display.
Gina Taylor (pictured) and I did presented our underwater film show in the local hall that night, just for fun. The roll-up was surprisingly good for a ‘ghost town’, formerly a gold mining boom town.
A pair of hotels remained open, otherwise it’s worth a visit to see the main street with old shops with wooden footpaths, just like a Hollywood western movie.
