1913 Beach Bathing Suits

This picture was taken in 1940 although the beach bathing suits they are wearing are from 1913. Women had to cover up from head to foot during the early 1900's or risk being arrested. This image is taken from the football film "The Life of Knute Rockne", with Pat O'Brien in the title role. The ribboned and ruffled ladies are left to right; Lois James, Lois Lindsay, Evelyn Atchinson and Marilyn Kinsley. They sure look to be having fun!
