Hols at Palm Beach (Australian Gold Coast)

Spent a week at the Gold Coast. Picture below shows the closest distance I got to the sea (or it to me). I’m not a beach person.

Sun, sand, wool and ukulele (1917)

The picture below appeared in the Evening Ledger (Philadelphia) on Thursday, 19 July 1917:

Two young women and one ukulele

The note reads:

“Your beach suit must be knit if you are to be strictly “in the swim”. The beach costume on the right is of striped grey wool, with a knit belt to match. The leaning toward black and white suitings still remains, as the other costume bears witness. Not least among the fads is the ukulele.”
