Glutton Terrace c1890’s. A feature up to World War I was a number of comfortable and permanent camps which sprang up on Sydney foreshores. They were mostly occupied by young men working in the city who enjoyed life on a beach in their spare time. Many of their friends who lived in more conventional houses welcomed the opportunity to join the camps at weekends. Camps were very common near the beaches and especially in the deeper gullies where fresh water was available from the many creeks.
