Colour photograph featuring the Ellerbock family and friends in swimming costumes at Croydon Swimming Pool, 1964. The family had travelled by train from Ringwood East.

The Ellerbock family immigrated from Upper Austria to Australia in 1955. They were sponsored, and their sponsors arranged for them to have temporary accommodation in Ringwood East from July 1955 to May 1956. They then settled in the area, and Mr Ellerbock was naturalised in 1961.

Photograph collected as part of Melbourne's Biggest Family Album in 2006.
