Bathing Costumes & Accessories from 1917

The year is 1917 and this catalogue shows some of the bathing attire and accessories one would have worn back in the day. Not just a bathing suit or dress, but stockings, shoes, and yes a rubber cap. I love to look at period catalogues like this to see the fashions from year to year and the prices! .35 for a rubber swimcap in 1917 translates to $6.36 in todays dollar. Not sure about you but I wouldn't even know where to go to get a swimcap for $6.00!
