The Donkeys

What was their purpose/allure on Atlantic Beach? Almost like an adult version of a pony ride. In that era of horses, I don't get it.

Beach movies

I was thinking more Mack Sennett 1915.

Beach Blanket Burro?

An early, not-so-successful, Frankie and Annette movie formula.

Look at this photo and don't crack a smile.

Jackass 1.0

Frankie and Annette of 105 years ago? Some things never change! Thank goodness, or where would WE be? I wonder if they went in for some nice refreshing Guzo after their romp?

Even on Vacation

"Though they often performed together on stage in Tijuana, few dared guess they were close personal friends and frequently traveled in each other's company."

Her Expression

She appears to be in on a joke I don't understand. I really think she's a cutie though. The girl ain't bad either!

Reminds me

... of a girlfriend I used to have. Loved the beach but never went in the water. Spent the whole day just sitting on her ass.
