the annual lumper’s picnic

Got to love this picture in The Sunday Times (Perth) – 17 March 1929.  The annual union picnic was a big deal in years gone by.  These waterside workers and their families often held their picnic at the zoo.  Wonder if any of the ginger beer went off like the home-made variety brewed in family sheds and laundries often did.

Gallons of ginger beer
