    Love the contrast and distances on the children! Eyecatching.

    Wonderful photo. It brings to mind a modern fashion photo shoot.

    This is my desktop background right now. Love the way two of the kids are looking distractedly and anxiously at something happening off to the left (perhaps an enemy dirigible is landing on the beach?), and the general gaucheness.

    I wonder if it was scandalous for girls to wear shorts in 1890? These don't really look like bathing costumes.

    I think this would be really cool if replicated in modern times.

    How fun! Let's get dressed up in our most uncomfortable clothes to splash around in the ocean....
