Day at the Beach

Yesterday someone mentioned in the comments that there were no pictures of men at the beach in my photo series. Well, your patience pays off today, as we offer up this handsome young man. He is getting all the attention, not just because of his stylish suit, and his rugged physique, but because he has brought his donkey to the beach as well. The picture was taken in 1905.

  3. So tomorrow you have swimmers diving off a seaplane's floats, swimming to shore to have a Texas whole steer barbecue (for the folks yesterday)

  6. Re: "I hope he brought a 'donkey-doo' baggie."

    That was my first thought. Rather, I wondered if he was expected to 'clean up' after his animal.

    Great minds…

  7. People rented donkeys on the beach in the old days. Maybe the donkey man had someone pick up after the wee beasties.
    Where I live people rent horses and ride along the bluffs and a couple designated beaches. Some environmentally concerned people fuss about manure on the bluff trails and on the beach. Other people point out that the manure causes a lot less pollution than the trash humans leave behind, including used diapers, not to mention the illegal alien camp along the creek - what a mess!

  9. Hi Old Bear! I've been wondering where you've been keeping yourself. Are you enjoying our ever changing, from one extreme to the next, Hoosier weather?

    I like this picture. There are several ladies with umbrellas (they don't look like parasols). I usually carry an umbrella with me for that same reason. I don't get a nice brown tan, I burn!

  11. Looks like a lot of fun. If you enlarge the photo, you can see that the girl on the donkey is winking.

    Wish i was there.
