That post got me thinking about my early 20th century relatives and what they wore while bathing or just lounging on the beach. I thought I would share some of them with you today.
|Frances (Bye) Jackson probably Nantasket Beach, Massachusetts, c1910|
|Signa, Lillian & Dorothy Jackson probably Nantasket Beach, 1920.|
Too cold to bathe, I suppose.
|Jennie (Bye) Loring probably Nantasket Beach, c1921.|
Check out the people in the background!
|Signa, Frances, Dorothy & Lillian Jackson|
probably Nantasket Beach, 1921.
|Ida (Whittemore), Nettie, Signa, and Ethel Jackson|
in Coronado Beach, California, June 23, 1922.
Not bathing and not technically on a beach, but in a town with
the word "beach" in its name so it qualifies.
|Frances on Nantasket Beach, c1930|
|Paul Heinz probably in Chicago area, c1930|
|Bye cousins at the beach, probably somewhere in Maine, c1940|
|Mom and her sisters in Chicago area, c1945|
You may not think this is technically a sport, but Sports Illustrated would disagree with you. Okay, I'm stretching it a little but who can blame me? This is my mother's family and you gotta love 'em! I do.
Thanks for dropping by.
