Punctually at 6 o’clock yesterday afternoon McNamara, one of the Rocks Push, who had been sentenced to 96 hours’ imprisonment and 20 lashes for throwing stones at ladies passing in the street, faced the triangle at Darlinghurst.

He was immediately divested of his clothing…. and those around stood aghast, a collective intake of breath could be heard as he stood before them in men’s swim shorts of such style and cut that none had seen the likes of before.
