Clothes for the Beach

Beach cover ups and nautical wear (love that snazzy sailor suit) from the mid-1930s.


";Historic Costume: A Resume of Style and Fashion from Remote Times to the Nineteen-Sixties." Katherine Morris Lester and Rose Netzorg Kerr, with additional illustrations by Ila McAfee and Helen Westermann.


Chas. A. Bennett Co., Inc., Peoria, Illinois, 1925, 193, 1942, 1956, 1961.


I found this book at a local thrift store and almost passed on it because at first riffle there seemed to be few illustrations. However, upon closer perusal, I realized the diminutive line drawings were gems and the text, while dated, is quite interesting.
