Today’s Top 5

I think

it looks like two very classy women sunbathing in style!

They were hot

They were hot, so they watched the waves and got a tan. Odd that they did not notice the three dead people behind them.

Gangster Molls

Ah you see.... they try to fool you, with their secret smiles, into noticing what they are sitting on rather than noticing the 3 bodies they left behind them in the sand. And it worked!

Blankets - not?

I'd say one blanket with a fringe, and a fancy overstuffed pillow.

Blanket, Heck!

I think that's a Persian carpet!

Blankets?

I think it looks more like a rug.

Is this the earliest example

on Shorpy of beachgoers actually using BLANKETS?
