Fowlers Bay and jetty 1905. The building on the left in the above photograph is the old Fowlers Bay Post Office (owned by Robert George Law in the 1960/70s, after the Post Office was closed). The building on the top right is the old Fowlers Bay Hotel. The out-buildings of the hotel have since disappeared under encroaching sandhills. [Information supplied by H. Law]

PICTURE of a Seal which was found one morning lately in the back yard of the Fowler’s Bay Hotel. The landlord (Mr. H. Darby), writes : “This is what I found in my backyard the other morning waiting for a drink. After some persuasion we induced the old fellow to return to the sea. This snap was taken on the seaweed.”
