1944: The Old, The New and The Future in Swimsuits

Los Angeles Ca, 1944. Back of photo reads: Bathing suit designs are given their official premier in showings at the Town House pool in Los Angeles, during which Earl Carroll lovelies modeled the latest creations of Catalina swimsuit designers. Here is the old, the new and the future in swimsuits demonstrated respectively by Marietta Elliott, Mairon Kerrigan and Tyra Vaughn. Miss Kerrigan is wearing one of the most attractive Catalina 1944 models with a Hawaiian motif in California hand print.

We have a new old stock with tags suit in our store at Glamoursurf.com which is oddly similar to the one Miss Kerrigan is wearing. How cool is that?





Now just pair it up with some peep toes and pin curls and Voila, you're a beautiful bombshell!
