What a fantastic shot!! I’m so glad that I don’t have to wear a dress to go swimming. No wonder ladies didn’t do much swimming. You would drown in those things. 🙂
It reminds me of my favorite picture of my grandfather. I like this picture so much because he was such a kind, strong and athletic man. I like remembering him this way. The two girls in the picture are my mother and her sister. This was probably taken ca. 1953 in Michigan.
