Dee Why
« on: Wednesday 23 August 17 08:49 BST (UK) »
Would anyone have photographs or information about The Strand, Dee Why?  In particular a deli at 11 The Strand, Dee Why in the 1930's
Also would like a photograph of Dee Why Beach around 1925-1930's.

It is always useful to do an Internet search when looking for things from the past:

You can see some old photos on this site.     https://www.facebook.com/pg/NarrabeenReunions/photos/?ref=page_internal

Hope they come out.....there are more there to scroll through....just go to 'photos', then 'see all', then on the fifth line down, at the end of the row, click on '1800 to 1960 Dee Why to Harbord'.   

Let me know if they don't come out and I'll try again for you.
