Dick Smith, yes the Dick Smith of Dick Smith Electronics, the grandson of Harold Cazneaux, stated in a 2008 interview where yet another Art Gallery of NSW Exhibition ‘Harold Cazneaux: Artist in Photography’ was celebrating his works;
‘His photographs were of places that he loved – the Flinders Ranges and Dee Why beach. Most people would not realise that the photos which show the Razzle Dazzle or the beaches come from Dee Why beach because that was my grandfather’s favourite place to take us.‘We would all go down in the silver anniversary Buick that he owned, to Dee Why beach, this was in the early 1950’s when he wasn’t photographing ( full time any more). To look at those photographs now and see the headland of Long Reef on the background, it takes me back to the wonderful weekends we had with my grandfather and my grandmother.’
