1930s-beach-photography-fashion

 

THESE VINTAGE SNAPSHOTS ARE FROM 1935. THEY WERE SNAPPED ON A BEACH IN AUSTRALIA WITH A HOBBY CAMERA. THE CHIC BATHING SUITS ARE TYPICAL OF BEACHWEAR FASHION FROM THE 1930S. THE MENS SWIMWEAR WAS A LITTLE MORE MODEST THAN TODAYS SPEEDOS. THE WOMENS SWIMWEAR COVERED MORE SKIN THAN A BIKINI BUT IT WAS ELEGANTLY SEXY. THE CHINESE UMBRELLA IS STYLISH AND AN EXCELLENT PROTECTOR FROM THE STRONG AUSTRALIAN SUN, WHICH CAN BURN PALE SKIN WITHIN MINUTES.
