    I seem to remember seeing an overhead photo from directly above the diving tower of the 1960’s version of Rainbow Beach. It showed the concrete walkway, the sand area, the illuminated flower pots, the circular (shallow area) pool, the slides, the deep water fence, and the diving tower. Is that photo, or other nostalgic photos of the 1960’s version of Rainbow Beach available on the web? My teen summers were spent there in the 60’s.
