Daring ladies on swinging deckchairs, 1905

Early 20th century fashion

I love so many things about this photo. I love the swinging deckchairs, those huge and cumbersome hats (on the beach!) and the fact that you seem to be able to see bits of these ladies which would have been frowned upon in those days (I can see their ankles, their wrists and their petticoats for goodness sake!).

Let’s all take tomorrow off girls and spend a day in the beach in our corsets, heavy woolen skirts and best hats!

    What a pair of hussies! Put a tash on one of them and they would look like Emily and Florence from little Britain “I’m a lady” Helene@revivalvintage x
