Bathing Beauties From the Past

Some of you will remember the more modest days at the beach from the past. This vintage postcard is a wee bit before me, but I do remember rarely seeing two piece suits much less bikinis. ( Until the song "Itsy Bitsy Teeny Weeny Yellow Polka Dot Bikini" came out!) In some ways I think it was a good thing even for the men. Left more to the imagination.

Enjoy the weekend!

I sure second that sentiment. Great postcard-do I see a quilt??

I'm a huge fan of vintage postcards and old poster art. This is great! A summer of long ago...so dreamy. Thanks for posting it.

Enjoy your weekend, too! Especially your Mom's big birthday bash!

There is something I can fire back with:
My father took it in 1955 when visiting our relatives in the USA. The lady with the crazy hat is my aunt.

Loved that link Eva! Your Aunt looks like quite the lady!

Notice how all these women have smiles on their faces too!
