A Beach Coverup Shall We Say?

Caption on back of photo: Circa 1925, Miss Charlot Bird. Los Angeles: A single bathing suit which will pass inspection by the most standing beach city fathers, yet which on a tug by a single cord will turn into a form revealing affair according to it's wearer perfect freedom in the water, has been evolved by a Los Angeles girl Miss Charlot Bird, who is working at Paramount Studios. It is an apron affair which can be tied around the waist can can be worn at will.

Interesting how folks were trying to get away with as much as possible in swimwear in the 1920's without being arrested!
