MALVERN BATHS OPENED
In spite of light showers and a rather cold
wind there was a good attendance of bathers
on Saturday afternoon, when the Malvern muni-
cipal baths were opened for the season. The
mayor of Malvern (Councillor S. Hattam) and
Councillor H. G. Wilmot (chairman of the baths
committee) were present, but there was no
formal opening ceremony. The baths, with tiled
floor and sides looked very inviting, and many
who had come merely to look on decided to
make the plunge. Since the closing of last season
many improvements have been made, including
the widening of the paths round the baths. The
gardens are in excellent order, and provide
a picturesque background. Mr. R. Edmonds, a
former champion swimmer of the State, is in
charge of the baths again this season.

Shared note

Samuel was the youngest son of John Hattam and his wife Ann (Nannie) Jenkin.

By the age of 25, he was operating as a Draper at Walhalla, Vic., and later also became a Director of the Walhalla Gold Mine. Amelia was a Milliner before her marriage.

When the gold rush ended in Walhalla around 1912, Samuel and his family moved to Malvern, Vic. where he joined his brothers operating drapery stores. Samuel later opened his own Drapery store in Carnegie, Victoria. Samuel served as a Councillor in the Shire of Malvern from 1921 and became the Mayor of Malvern in 1928/1929.
