9 The Esplanade, December 1934. A sad reflection of a Clubhouse proudly completed in 1928 as “the only canoe sheds built out of reach of flood water”.
Evidently more than 140mm rain fell in 48 hours creating these record floods. 36 people died, 400 buildings damaged and 6000 people made homeless. A single lake being formed that extended from South Yarra to Warrandyte.
