Auckland - Eastern - 1960's

Melons Bay, East Auckland, New Zealand.

Melons Bay,  New Zealand; white sand, safe swimming and boating.

Close by to the township of Howick, once separated from Auckland City by farmlands but now part of the urban sprawl that was Manukau City, but is now part of the enlarged Auckland City.

White sands and safe swimming for all the family, in contrast to the black sands of the west coast beaches and wild surf.

Taken 28th May, 1961.
