US beaches in 1911

Some nostalgic photos from 1911, showing American beaches. Way before the age of bikinis and skimpy swim-suits, people went to the beach wearing lots of clothing, and only their feet, arms and faces were visible, especially with girls. Most boys still wore a t-shirt although some dared to bare their chest, which was probably considered risky in those days.
This is what sun-bathing looked like in 1911
