Santa Monica Images, 1923

This weekend I came across a photo album book from the early 1920's. I've scanned a few of the photos to share with you.
Some of the images declare a place, date and or name, and in general most of the ones I selected were from Santa Monica in the early 1920s. I'm particularly fond of this one with long skirt and tied belt.


That robe! Or perhaps it's a jacket, handsome right?


And here's the reason I got it. The suits are wool and somewhat unisex, although hers does appear to have a little bit of design work to it. And I love how she has made a belt of seaweed.



Santa Monica in the early 1920s. The coastline sure has changed since then!

She's ready for a dip. Note how the people in the back ground are still bundled up in coats and hats. Most of these were pasted down on black paper. Some of them have aged, but overall still in good condition. Enjoy!

Love all the photos! I can imagine grandma in a suit like that.
