Girls Under 14 Backstroke. Unfortunately the faces are not shown but I am in lane 8. The club carnivals were great events as shown by the crowd of supporters. My family (Wolff) left Yallourn in January 1966 and I really missed the Swimming Club. Although I was in the swimming team at my new school in Geelong nothing was like the Club at Yallourn....Diane Wolff
