Moonball on the Beach

8 06 2013

Continuing last week’s beach togs theme is this c. 1920s photograph of an elaborate and no doubt colorful ensemble, complete with fringed parasol. Quite a contrast to today’s 6-degrees-to-nude stylings.  The reverse of the photo is stamped ‘Keystone View Co. Inc. of N.Y.’ and has a piece of paper affixed with a typewritten caption: ‘Bathing Suits For the Sunny South – Egypt is not forgotten these days.  Here is Claire Cassel, noted tennis star, in a stunning costume, especially designed for her by Miss Elsie Hiller.  Miss Cassel is due south where she will show these bathing suits to Palm Beach.’
