Atlantic City

Today's picture shows a group of swimmers at Atlantic City. This picture was taken in 1903, and shows an even higher degree of modesty in swimsuit styles than we saw in yesterday's 1922 picture. The folks do look like they are having a good time.

  3. Unlike many photos from the period, they don't have the staid, solemn poses we always find.

  4. IN 1903, with faster film they could take more impromptu shots.

  7. Love this photo and how much fun they are having. These types of suits are much better than the "old fashioned" wool ones that women wore in the 19th century! :-) Can you just imagine? We think these bathing costumes might be too bulky but they were probably made of cotton or linen. The old ones were wool and covered literally neck to feet.
