1897 American Bathing Girl at the Beach Article, Photos

This is an original illustrated magazine article that has been carefully extracted from an 1897 issue of Metropolitan Magazine. Sort of a photo essay featuring men and women at the beach.

Photos include:

ï Two young persons who care more for their comfort than elegance, and are not averse to wetting their costumes
ï Two daring shallow pool swimmers
ï A summer mermaid and winter siren
ï An athletic interlude between dips
ï Another example of that unsolved puzzle, "why will a man of lean physique wear the tightest costume he can struggle into?"
ï These young women can strike artistic poses effectively, but their natatorial abilities are under grave suspicion
ï and others
