Fun at the beach (1910s – 1920s)

Fully-dressed at the beach (c1920)

Suit vests at the seaside, of course! Somewhere in New York or along the coast northward.

Same day as the above. My grandmother is in the front, with her family.


Lake beach (c1910)

At the lakeside, perhaps?


Beachy keen (1919)

My grandmother’s on the right.


Old Orchard Beach, Maine (1929)

Back is inscribed: “At the beach in Old Orchard – Summer 1929.” The building in the back appears to be the “Lafayette Public Bath House,” and the beach umbrella has an ad for R G Sullivan’s cigar factory in Manchester, NH.
