This is a snapshot from the antique shop in Duluth Minnesota.
Bathing beauties…a few of these people might have been in that leaky boat on Monday (Photo Number 1322).
I have some of these wool suits in the museum, they are heavy, warm and itchy looking…and I can only imagine what they smelled like when they got wet.
Thanks for stopping by. Do come again:)
Wow, wool would be miserable dry so I can't imagine wet wool of any kind of garment.ReplyDelete
They look like they are having a grand old time! Betcha Chance wants to swim with 'em!ReplyDelete
I like wool socks - but you have to admit, modern synthetics make excellent quick to dry, non-chaffing swimwear.
The dude in this photo isn't the dude in the boat unless he has a toupee on :)
Beautiful photo. I'd like to make a painting based on it.ReplyDelete
We've come a long way (not necessarily all in a good way). :/ReplyDelete
I have never been able to imagine the thinking behind using wool for bathing suits.ReplyDelete
