About Joseph Vindin Strong, MBE

Lived at "Broomfield", 62 Bower Street, Manly, a turn of the century two storey house with breathtaking views north up the coast beyond Palm Beach and overlooking Cabbage Tree Bay and Shelley Beach (the only inland facing ocean beach on the east coast of Australia). It is a popular surfing spot off the headland. There was no garage on the propery, so Grandpa Joe used a garage cut into the rock opposite in which he parked his cream Dodge, HE-999, which he nicknamed 'Beelzebub' and I can remember him drivng me around Manly Golf Club fairways when he was Captain of the Club. He was also a founder of Manly Surf Club (not SLSC) which still exists. He swam in the surf daily for many years and was Chairman of Manly District Hospital for 23 years and had the then New maternity Ward named after him. He was a councillor on Manly Council and a Past President of Manly Rotary. He was a longtime partner in the real estate firm of Robey, Hanson & Strong located on The Corso opposite St Matthew's Church.
