Buried at Seashore: 1905

Buried at Seashore: 1905

Atlantic City, New Jersey, circa 1905. "Beach bathers and Steel Pier." And a girl we'll call Sandy. 5x7 inch dry plate glass negative, Detroit Photographic Company. View full size.

 

Morticia, Gomez, and Ophelia?

The trio in the foreground could be the first half of a cartoon by Charles Addams. The second half of the cartoon might show Fester steering a bulldozer toward the half-buried woman.

Sandy is great

And I love the fact that it’s not just another woman but also a man covering her up with sand. But I’m afraid I am captivated forever by the woman sitting closer to the waterline, on the right, looking straight at us till the end of time, and raising her hand in a tentative wave. A new Shorpy goddess!
