Every Gal Needs Some Bathing Boots

At least you would have in 1917, when swimming was called bathing and every gal needed to be covered from head to foot. Well, your arms could be exposed but that was about it. A rubber bathing cap, bathing boots or bathing shoes, a bathing suit and stockings were all needed to go in the ocean or lounge at the beach. Quite a change when you consider some of the skimpy bikini's of the 80s and 90s and today wouldn't you say?
