Description . SAED:SOCIAL:DRUM FEBRUARY 1952Ð A Day In The Beach Ð Look at those people out with the sharks!!. IÕd rather stay here and build sand castles. - There are thousands of Africans on the Reef and in the country who have never seen the sea; but to Africans, Coloureds and Indians in Durban there is a huge salt swimming bath and a sandy beach that is free for all, and for sharks too! You can see the sharks all too well sporting themselves in the sea by the Umgeni River, and bathers must keep between strict limits if they donÕt want their feet chopped off! But that doesnÕt stop children running down to the beaches whenever they can, paddling, diving, riding on the waves and standing on their heads. People in Durban say they have plenty of problems, but the sea washes most of them away! (Photograph by Jurgen Schadeberg © BAHA) NEG 039 FRAME 22
