‘Ava-Putt’ mini-golf ‘Mt Vesuvius’

This amazing photograph is actually a ‘frame grab’ from footage shot by Mr Small in the very early 1930s.
It shows the fascinating hole called ‘Mount Vesuvius’ and it was the job of an early resident, Bill McDonald, as a teenager, to gather dried cow-pats and combine them with a few pages of the Sydney Morning Herald. They would then be introduced to the top of the hole and lit so that when patrons came to play on the weekend, ‘Vesuvius’ would actually smoke!
