Measuring Up At The Beach

Perfect timing. Just as the one-piece has come back into style, Vintage Seattle reader Danae
sent in these fantastic photos of some old family friends at an unknown Seattle beach. The hairstyles and bathing suits are pretty stylish — I could see some of the higher cuts being worn today. Thanks Danae and take it away:
My name is Danae.
I a am 5th generation Seattlite. My Grandma, nearing 80 and still living in Lake City, has wonderful stories and artifacts in her house. The other day I was going through some photos with her and found these snaps of girls on the beach in suits. She didn’t know any of the women but she said they were probably childhood friends of her mothers.
I thought you might enjoy them.
Unfortunately, I have no way of placing where they were taken. I especially love the one with the sailor that seems to be measuring a girls leg.
Thanks for your blog!
