Beach fashion

Wow, beach attire has sure changed from earlier Shorpy beach photos. Women now have legs! And we can see them! But guys still have to wear shirts. :(

Just twenty years earlier....

Remarkable how much the bathing attire changed in those twenty years. Some of the ladies suits here you might see today in more mature women. And to think, I've got bathing suits myself older than those twenty years.
