Nude bathing on Eastbourne Beach - NO WAY!

There has been considerable publicity given to Kapiti District Council's move to allow nude bathing along the whole of their coast line. Wellington City Council points out that although there has been a local beach regularly used by nude bathers for some years, they do not have any bylaw against such behaviour and haven't for some time.

I enjoyed finding this reference then in an old Evening Post (7 Jan 1908) that records the passing of Eastbourne's new bylaw prohibiting such practices. And note, they even had swimming code inspectors - caretakers of the PUBLIC GOOD!
