Photographer's Note

This is the only beach we visited during the summer holidays. It was winter in Melbourne.
This is the famous Dendy Street Beach in the suburb of Brighton.

Bathing boxes were very common in the 19th century, as early as 1862. There are currently 1860 around Port Phillip and Western Port Bays of which 1315 can be found on the Mornington Peninsula. This cluster of 82 boxes, closer to the city, are however the most famous. They only measure 4.8m2 but some have been sold for as much as A$190,000, like a small flat. There is no water, no electricity, no plumbing and you are not allowed to sleep in them.

Cette plage est la seule que nous avons visité durant nos vacances d'été. C'était l'hiver à Melbourne. Il s'agit de la célèbre plage de Dendy Street dans le quartier de Brighton.

Des cabanes de plages étaient très courant durant le 19ième siècle, ici dès 1862. Il y a actuellement 1860 autour des baies de Port Phillip et Westernport dont 1315 se trouvent sur la péninsule de Mornington. Ce groupe de 82 cabanes, plus près de la ville, sont les plus célèbres. Elles ne measurent que 4,8m2 mais certaines ont été vendue à A$190,000, comme un petit appartement. Il n'y a pas d'eau, ni électricité ni sanitaires et on n'a pas le droit d'y dormir.
