This week, our Sepia Saturday host posted a photograph of his Auntie Miriam enjoying the seaside. Alan thought it would be nice to think of warmer times, for those experiencing the cold right now. Well, I like that idea just fine, so I’m sharing some family photographs as well.
Can you imagine swimming in that suit? While I wouldn’t say I love some of the swim suit fashions of today, I am certainly glad we have evolved beyond the full coverage, wool or linen get ups of yesteryear! This side of my family loved photographs and fortunately a cousin has scanned lots of them for us. Thanks L!
UPDATE: Cousin L tells me these were from Ocean City, NJ. My great-great-grandmother had a big house there and invited family members to come for extended stays. The house and servants are gone, but the memories remain. Oh, the good old days!
