1950's bathing beauties.

1950's Bathing Beauties by Shannon D1970.

This is from an old German magazine.
I love everything in this photo, from the vintage swimsuits to the beach straw hats.

There is something about old magazines that I enjoy flipping through.
Whenever I visit any antique store I always make sure to scavenge the old magazine section.
It's interesting to see how styles and perspectives have evolved, changed, and appear again in different forms.
