Another "Bathing Beauties" Image!

Another "Bathing Beauties" Image!

Here is another image from the album I purchased. I can only imagine how itchy and hot their wool bathing suits were to wear on the sunny beach at Atlantic City. Note: I "assume" this is Atlantic City. Does anybody have any information regarding the "Globe" (theatre?) sign in the back ground to substantiate this being Atlantic City?

Bathing Beauty!

Bathing Beauty!

Another image from the old family album I purchased years ago in Portsmouth, Ohio (for only $2.00 - What a deal AND a steal!), this "bathing beauty" is one of a few images in the album illustrating of a group of friends in Atlantic City!

Dennis Patrick O'Manning

Dennis Patrick O'Manning is my great-great grandfather. He was the first paternal ancestor of my father to live in America, probably emigrating from Ireland in the 1830s. The origin of the photo is unknown, but was likely taken in the 1880s. He apparently lived most of his life in Illinois.
