Hubby's Grammy was a hottie back in the day, which is over 100 years ago. And judging by this picture, she knew it.
I think it must have been somewhat forward of her to take a girl who was presumably one of her nieces to a photographer's studio to have their portrait done in their bathing costumes. A historian dated this photo for us to 1908-1909, so this could not have been Grammy Nellie's daughter, thus my presumption that it was a niece.
Notice that you can actually see the curve of her well turned ankle in the cotton stockings under Nellie's bathing costume!
And now, gents, be glad that the ladies don't wear swimsuits like these to the beach any longer. And, ladies, need I say for all of us, "Thank goodness for tank tops and shorts or short skirts!"
Happy Memorial Day, everyone.
And happy drools from Thor, enjoying his new bib (or "slabber", in Flemish).
